Book Details

Challenging Circumstances

What would happen if you left your cell phone with private photos in a bathroom at a high school party, or survived severe childhood physical abuse, or were bullied every day in junior high school? What if you were wrongfully arrested, tricked into loving an unconventional person, or had outside forces change your relationship with your mother? How would you cope with the paranormal, or a discouraging difference in how people saw you, or a perplexing murder with despicable suspects? Unexplored Lives is a compilation of 9 stories that reflect the varied lives of ordinary people under extraordinary circumstances. These situations may initially seem familiar, but life can be complicated. As you discover the tales within this book, be prepared to cringe, smile, and frown as a world of individuals whose uncommon experiences are uncovered.
