Have you ever wanted to know why teenagers behave the way they do? Aside from puberty and hormones, they are faced with a plethora of situations that they don’t always understand, and many feel that no one understands them. In Lessons: Shattered Pieces Being Restored, the reader finds a voice and connection with the discussion of self-defeating concepts, growing up as a fatherless daughter, dealing with anger, and being bullied in school. This book speaks to teens, girls in particular, and explores a myriad of issues they encounter that they may feel are life-shattering. LaDonna Marie cleverly marries her poetic style with that of a playwright by creating characters whose lives are told to the reader in the form of poetry. It is clear that the writer’s purpose is to empower young girls to “put their insecurities to rest,” gain self-love from accepting God’s love, and make the wise decisions that bring restoration and peace.

Reviewed by Charity Tober for Readers' Favorite Lessons: Shattered Pieces Being Restored by LaDonna Marie is an inspirational and self-motivational read. The book follows the stories of three different girls, Chantel, Casey and Mandy, as they navigate this hard journey called life. The author writes a short scenario for each girl, explaining their current place in their lives, along with their feelings, and then utilizes multiple thought-provoking poems to further express the feelings and resolutions for each situation. LaDonna Marie covers a multitude of common situations, such as bullying, past regrets, anger, parental loss, self-esteem and love, to name just a few. I found Lessons: Shattered Pieces Being Restored to be such a beautiful book. The poems were inspiring, lyrical as well as reflective. The author takes a Christian viewpoint to show people that life is worth living, each person has worth and no matter what, everyone can prevail if they just try. Nothing is too hard or too bleak to overcome. The book directs readers to have faith that God will see you through, and to believe that you can beat all odds and make it. I would recommend this book to young (tween to teen) girls especially, as I believe they can relate to the struggles and lives of the three young girls mentioned. Parents with teen children can benefit from reading this book as well, as the author provides so many inspirational and motivational solutions to dealing with life issues. A positive mindset is a powerful tool when dealing with life’s hardships. Kudos to LaDonna Marie for providing such an empowering book.
