~~~~~~~ Reader Comments ~~~~~~~
Shellye I started reading it on the plane back to Oakland and found it so riveting and inspiring. You
are someone with amazing strength and it takes a special kind of courage and generosity to reveal your life story so that
others affected by sickle cell disease feel they are not alone and can receive inspiration and support. Those of
us who have not experienced this disease personally can begin to have a deeper understanding by walking with you as your vivid
story unfolds in your book

Tam "I really enjoyed this book."
book is a great read! It takes you on a journey through the life of a strong willed, ambitious, and humble woman who fought
many battles in life ON TOP of dealing with Sickle Cell disease. Throughout this heartfelt story, Jones draws you in with
her humanistic writing style, giving readers an opportunity to step inside the shoes of a sickle cell patient and see what
life is like while living with this rare disease. This book is an inspiring read and will motivate anyone who has ever had
to overcome a struggle of any kind, and felt alone while doing so. It's also very informative for anyone who has sickle cell
disease or knows someone who does. I highly recommend it."
