Book Review – Life, In Spite of Me : Extraordinary Hope After a Fatal Choice by Kristen Jane Anderson

i knew this was a true story i didn’t know what to expect but man oh man the story was truly heartbreaking but so amazing at the same time. it was such a quick read for me i finished it in one day. though i probably could have finished it in a couple hours i just didn’t sit down and read it all the way it was spaced through the day. but it was for sure an amazing book. it could especially help those who have thought of suicide before.

Book Description:

“She wanted to die. God had other plans.

Why does my life have to be so painful?
What’s wrong with me?
It’s not going to get better.
It could all be over soon, and then I won’t hurt anymore.

Kristen Anderson thought she had the picture-perfect life until strokes of gray dimmed her outlook: three friends and her grandmother died within two years. Still reeling from these losses, she was raped by a friend she thought she could trust. She soon spiraled into a seemingly bottomless depression.

One January night, the seventeen-year-old decided she no longer wanted to deal with the emotional pain that smothered her. She lay down on a set of cold railroad tracks and waited for a freight train to send her to heaven…and peace.

But Kristen’s story doesn’t end there.

In Life, In Spite of Me this remarkably joyful young woman shares the miracle of her survival, the agonizing aftermath of her failed suicide attempt, and the hope that has completely transformed her life, giving her a powerful purpose for living.

Her gripping story of finding joy against all odds provides a vivid and unforgettable reminder that life is a gift to be treasured. “
