When children grow up without the support of a loving family, the lack of proper parental guidance during their youth can put them in danger of being led astray later in life. In “Keisha Who Do You Trust: Our Life Stories,” author Lydia Williams tells a riveting story of six adopted children struggling against exploitation, and how one girl takes on the challenge of being a teenage mother.

After being legally adopted by their grandmother, an old and wealthy woman who retired from being a judge, six young cousins learn the meaning of true survival. With no one else to take them in, they are forced to do whatever she wants them to do in order to live in her house. They never mention to anyone about the mental and physical abuse and molestation they endure everyday in their so-called home in the fear of being separated from each other. Keisha, the oldest, is a disturbed alcoholic sixteen-year-old who is soon to become a mother of two. She takes most of the responsibility when it comes to raising their four youngest cousins, and learns later in life how cruel people can be and that trust isn’t the key to surviving.

Wrapped with unpredictable twists and turns, “Keisha Who Do You Trust: Our Life Stories” follows these young cousins as they struggle to survive on their own through their difficult journey in life. This compelling dramatic saga will engage readers from the first page down to the last.

This book will be featured at the 2013 Illinois Library Association Book Exhibit in Chicago, IL, on 15-17, 2013.
