What is it that makes a young girl growing up in the inner city crave the attention of and attachment to a bad boy, a straight up street thug with a touch of class? Is it the glitch in his gait, the crookedness of his smile, or is it the inflection in his speech - the way he bends his words?
Angie was basically a good girl with a tortured past. This story tells of how she takes off on the roller coaster ride of her life. As she moved from adolescence to her teens, some of her choices began to have a harmful effect on her while some of those choices were forced upon her by her incestuous uncle, whom for many years caused her fear, pain and confusion. Angie's downright determination caused her to ask - is this the kind of life I want to live? It is not until you are lost in this world can you begin to find your very best path. Realizing that you are lost is the first step to living the kind of life you want. The second step is leaving behind the life you don't want. Making a big life change is pretty scary, but you know what's even scarier? Regret.
I can tell you from my own life experience that I've found love, lost it, found it, lost it and then I found it once again. But each time what I found was more incredible than the last. So remember that everyone suffers in life at some point. Everyone feels lost sometimes. The key is using your experiences to grow. When you apply what you're learning to your future choices and actions, you move forward not backward. Ultimately you become stronger and wiser. It's not easy, but it's worth it in the end
