Stuck On The Steps by NinaBy Teresa Beasley • Jul 9th, 2012 • Category: Book Review 2012 • Email This Post • Print This Post
Heartfelt lyrics are the basis of Stuck On The Steps by Nina, the story of a young girl plagued by unwanted advances while enduring an abusive environment. Nina gives a full account of her life and how its impact affected her upbringing. Nina shares broken relationships and how her naive nature changed over time.
Nina was raised by her grandmother and she was not fond of her family. It seems Nina’s family could not be trusted when it was time to protect her from family members who were causing her harm. Having no help, care, or guidance makes it easier for Nina to write her story, which provides the therapy she needs. Writing her story has helped her come out of the darkness that has held her captive. In the beginning readers will believe Nina is helpless but will finish the story knowing that Nina is a survivor.
Stuck On The Steps is about surviving all that life throws your way. I applaud the author for not letting the past hinder her future. I also applaud the author for sharing her raw autobiography in a unique manner that is sure to catch readers attention. This poetically structured book will bring readers closer to who Nina was and who she has now become. I recommend this book to poetry lovers.
