|There are only two stories in this book, but both stories are meant to command your attention.
In “Shattered,” you will meet a young girl trying to find her way in the world. She was raised by her grandmother, and is newly finding out who her real mother is. No matter how hard she tries, no one will tell her about her paternity, however. This one will remain a secret, until it is not. Until the revelation she wouldn’t have expected in a million years tears her apart.
In “The way the other way lives,” you will meet another heroine, born into abject poverty, the fourth girl in a family of girls who have never had anything come easy to them. After having had a brief glimpse into how the rich live, will she ever willingly return to living a life of misery? Or will she do all it takes to never have to do without ever again?
