“If you truly loved someone you won’t become their enemy. You will become their guardian angel.” – Shannon L. Alder

Monica Helene Thomas’s book ‘I’ll never amount to nothing so you say’ is a short fiction story revolving around an African-American single mother and her children. Hardened from a tough childhood involving a bickering and over-bearing mother, Keisha Hawkins is now herself a single mother to two children. Her grit and determination to overcome her mother’s negative image of her turns her into a success. But something remains amiss in her life as the anger towards her mother and her past haunts her present. And it is only when an unfortunate incident occurs in her life that the pieces of her life finally start falling into place.

Monica’s book is a realistic story about loving, hurting and healing. This novella can be called a love story but the love in this story doesn’t revolve around your atypical hero and heroine. The love in this story is between a mother and her child, it’s a love between siblings’ and the greatest of them all it’s about the love for oneself. Because you have to take care of yourself first and only then will you be physically and emotionally fit to love someone else. The writing ensures that you will get entrapped in Keisha’s family life from the very beginning and will establish a special bond with these characters. The growth of her character has also been captured nicely within these many pages. The person we are introduced to in the start of the book transforms a great deal by the end as she finally gets the closure she was looking for.

It’s an inspiring read that teaches you how self-loathing and hate won’t get you anywhere.

This is a down to earth story about how not all family’s are sunny side up. Keisha is struggling with her past and has lots of anger built up inside of her. At the end though she is able to overcome her anger and move on to happier things in her life.

I feel like the story was well written, however, I think the author tried to fit a lot of story line into a small novella, some of the story was irrelevant to the transformation of the main character, Keisha. Focusing more on her thoughts, emotions, etc and how she was able to leave the anger behind would have been more befitting to this story.

Overall it was an enjoyable, short read.

Keisha’s character grabbed me early on. In her gut and in her soul, Keisha Knew she would overcome whatever was put in front of her and not only survive, but thrive. Her vision for the future was clear, as was her commitment to her children. Her growth throughout the story strengthened her self-confidence. Keisha blossomed into a wise and happy woman! Well done!!
