Overview

Little Wild Thang: A Diary by Lydia Joyner, Stefanie Storm

Little Wild Thang is Lydia Joyners big debut. After years of speaking about her story and raising awareness on issues surrounding mental illness, rape, murder, homelessness, poverty, foster care, prostitution, and suicide, Lydia has created a raw and humorous coming-of-age diary using real excerpts from her own diaries, fantasies, and foster care files. Through pop culture, events in history, and her child's tongue, Lydia gives you the full she-bang of what it was like to grow up in the 1980's with such atrocities in an enchanting land on the Space Coast of Florida, where she fought with will and fire to reunite with her mother, who was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia. Imagination was endless as astronauts shoot to the moon and mermaid dreams come true, but hell on earth existed. Be prepared to go on a little girl's journey with unyielding determination and perseverance to make it through the hurricanes to a brighter horizon.
Warning: This ain't no ordinary diary.
