Snake in The Grass; A Memoir Paperback – February 19, 2013
About the Author
“Snake in the Grass” is my true testament of triumph and rising above tragedy. I share with you the reader true life stories of survival after the infliction of abuse, violence, rage and loss. I see a world today where thousands still harm others without remorse and their choices are making a deadly turn causing our young innocent ones to struggle in life. People’s lives remain in the dark and anger consumes the soul as if vengeance is the way to their salvation. I am not that of a saint or righteous minded person. I do have the collective wisdom based on my own personal experiences and witnessing the misfortune of others to give advice and guidance to those who wish to find positive change in their lives. It is true that few are able to fully understand unless they have been in my shoes. Discovery is story sharing and I have especially prepared these stories for you. My hand is extended and I invite you into my world, so prepare yourself for an unforgettable journey of insight, matters of the heart and healing of the mind and soul.

It is a true story of a cousin of mine who endured the hardest times of her life. No parent should ever see their child murdered.
Everyone should read this and reflect
Having said that, I very rarely give negative reviews but due to all of the positive reviews, I felt it necessary that there be an HONEST review. First of all, when I pay $8.00 for a book (which isn't often), I expect at the very least that the punctuation & grammar be accurate. The author either failed to hire an editor or the editor struggled with proper grammar etiquette (homonyms to be exact). I don’t know how many times she referred to “Principle Barnes”. At least 15 times she spoke of “Principle Barnes” & only one time she spelled it correctly (Principal). Another example would be when the author was describing “frogs in a pale”. Multiple times she talked of frogs in a pale when it should have been pail. The incorrect usage of “to, two & too” were TOO many TO count. I could go on & on & on as there were MANY, MANY errors & mis-spelled words but I’m sure by now you get the picture.
My second complaint is how the book was described as a “Memoir”, yet I got the feeling that it was more of a “how to” book than anything. I guess I resented the fact that the author is telling the readers what to do & what not to do in raising children but, in my opinion has made many bad choices in raising her own children that haven’t been recognized.
Last but certainly not least, I had a REAL problem with reading scriptures from the Bible as well as the author’s professed Christianity & involvement with the church, yet she (AND her son) felt the need to blurt out 4-letter words on every page. I don’t understand why people can’t express themselves without using profanity. It got so bad at the end of the book that I just skimmed the last couple of chapters.
I’m giving the book 2 stars & I’m being generous.
