Beth's life was been an endless struggle. When her Father left, her mother broke down, leaving the weight of the world on her shoulders. Her four year old shoulders, to be exact.
Ten years later, and she's moving to live with her dad, in a large, fancy house, in some posh estate with his new super-model wife and three perfect children.
But when She starts school, everything she believes in, all the anger she has towards her father, all the hatred to her new house, all the disgust to her mother, is replaced with a feeling she's never felt before.
One boy can annoy her, insult her, make her so angry in unreal, in the same second, yet he can make her feel loved, calm her down and make her feel safe, and make her Happy.
I am an example of what is possible when girls from the very beginning of their lives are loved and nurtured by people around them. I was surrounded by extraordinary people in my life who taught me about quiet strength and dignity.
