By some combination of miracle and necessity, she walked into a Seattle area Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu gym and rolled for the first time in her life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must Read!! Elena Stowell's writing is down to earth and accessible to readers of all walks of life. Without detracting from the focus, her jokes bring levity to a difficult subject while driving her point home. She shoots straight and isn't ashamed to admit the good, the bad and the ugly of what and how she feels - feelings that many of us also have but are afraid to voice out loud - and as a result the reader no longer feels so alone. With quotes from Star Wars to Mother Theresa to Kurt Vonnegut to Wonder Woman to Kahlil Gibran and Jake sully, as you read Stowell's journey, you see her become stronger through her struggle and you know that you will too.
