    Uncanny similarities

    I came across this book by chance and couldn't believe the number of similarities between the life stories of Janet McDonald and Debra Dickerson, author of _An_American_Story_. Both writers came from extremely humble beginnings and rose to great heights, both studied and mastered foreign languages, both were raped. The parallels go on and on. Ms. McDonald's story does an incredible job of illustrating how much of one's success in life is related to one's own hard work, and also to one's luck (her getting the job in Paris, for instance). This book should be required reading for everyone in public housing and/or those who are convinced that achievement is beyond them.

    A must read for anyone who doubts their ability to achieve

    The book was great, very accurate, and honest. I know this because Janet is a relative of mine. I visited the family the summer of the fire she spoke about in her building and since I am from California I had never seen 'Projects', Ghettos, yes, but not projects. The book made me re-live that summer. I am very proud of you!!!. I read the book a couple of years ago, but just got around to posting a review
