This remarkable true story will inspire you with a thirst for more and encourage you to push for the life you've always dreamed of. At fifteen, Amanda dreams of a summer full of fun and freedom, but she learns those dreams will have to be put on hold when she discovers she is pregnant. Trying to keep the news a secret, she goes about life acting as if everything is normal, but some secrets aren't meant to be kept. When Amanda reveals the truth to her family, she has already determined what needs to happen: someone else - a responsible, loving adult - should raise the baby. After the adoption, Amanda doesn't know how to cope with all the emotions resulting from her decision and she falls into a steady decline of destructive behavior. In an attempt to numb her pain she seeks solace in the arms of a conniving man who nearly damages her beyond repair. At her breaking point, a chance encounter sets Amanda on a path of renewed hope. She desperately calls out to God for breakthrough. Just as things are just beginning to look up, the past catches up with her, leaving her wondering if her dreams will ever come true. In this captivating tale of risk and hardship, Amanda vigorously fights everything that stands in her way, hoping it will lead to something far greater than she ever more
