New book "My Story" from Page Publishing Author Bonitto is the story of a young girl who faces a series of challenges so daunting it seems the entire world is against her. Can she brave the gauntlet lain before her and ultimately rise victorious?

Bonitto, a native of Kingston Jamaica who taught herself how to read and write, has completed her first book "My Story": the gripping and potent tale of a young girls self-discovery, endurance, and rock solid resolve to survive.

About her work Bonitto says: "I would describe the message of this book, which I spent seven years writing, as meant to give hope to those who believe or were told they couldn’t do something. I would like to thank my writing mentors, Erika, Lynn, Gabriella."

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Bonitto’s poignant tale illuminates the wonderful resilience of the human spirit and will inspire anyone to never let go of their dreams.

My Story is told by a young girl who had to grow up faster than any child should. It is April’s story, told in April’s voice. Readers follow April as she witnesses the awesome beauty of storms, births, and mangoes, feels the terror of a singularly unpleasant stepfather, the joy of an aunt with whom she feels a truly authentic connection, and the unimaginable anguish caused by the loss of that connection.

But through her loss, April’s story takes on fascinating new dimensions. After her Auntie Marcie moves away, My Story ceases to be a simple memoir about growing up in Jamaica and turns into an intricately layered commentary on otherness and recursive patterns of violence and neglect within families.

Readers who wish to experience this uplifting work can purchase "My Story" at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
