You give me, I give you

Author: Jeanette Gabonnwe
ISBN: 978-0-62053-922-7

Summary:
This story is about hope, choices, perseverance, hard work and positive thinking. The are two characters, Betsy and Stacy, who are friends but think completely differently. In life we make completely different choices, choices that determine our destiny. Some people do not give up fighting hard to achieve their dreams, while others complain perpetually and never achieve anything. The story encourages young people to be the voice of the voiceless, to advocate for the eradication of poverty, inequalities and the "pull her down syndrome".
The book stresses that it is important to always have faith, to keep pressing on, even under unbearable circumstances; one day you shall overcome.
The lesson of the story is that, in order to succeed, you need to surround yourself with positive people.
The story has inspired me and I would like to wish my friend all of the best. God bless you.
