Chloris C. Hall’s “Girl, You Ain’t Gonna Make It” is a story about a woman named Temika, who fought for her life with all her might. She went through drug abuse, prostitution, parental abuse, and sexual abuse and sold drugs to survive. Although she has both of her parents, unlike many people, Temika and her thirteen siblings were left to raise themselves alone in an unfriendly environment.

Temika had no clear direction in life and lacked resources. She became depressed, was lost mentally, became helpless, and fell in the hands of people who preyed on her adolescence and weaknesses. After dropping out of high school at the age of fourteen, everyone said Temika’s life was going nowhere; she was finished. They gave up on her. They said she ain’t gonna make it.

Temika’s life went downhill fast afterward. She had no support, no love, and no real friends. She couldn’t trust anyone; she was left alone. Temika had no idea how to get her life back on the right track, so she ran to the streets for love, and that’s when she lost herself. She became a statistic and the product of her surroundings. She lost control. Temika didn’t make it, so they said. “Girl, You Ain’t Gonna Make It” is compelling fiction about a woman who beat the odds, based on today’s real-life obstacles.

About the Author
Chloris C. Hall: Life Quote – “If you believe in something without doubting it, trusting in God along the way, one day you will wake up to a dream that has become a reality. The people who once said it wouldn’t come true have all faded away. As a result, you become closer to God. God, whose son was crucified for our sins, has proven his value yet another day. All he asks is that people who witness his blessing inform others where it came from. If this is ingrained in each one of us, he can continue to live forever.”
