"As other girls my age were blossoming and becoming “beautiful” I felt that I did not have the gift of beauty or anything that made me special. I would write poems and stories about how I felt, my experiences and dreams."

Noris De Jesus-Petrone, a practicing Marriage & Family Counselor, as well as an adjunct professor at two separate colleges, has completed her first book “The Pig Girl”: a gorgeously illustrated book filled with wonder and the redeeming power of love and goodness.
“I remember being bullied and feeling like an outsider when I was a teen. As other girls my age were blossoming and becoming 'beautiful' I felt that I did not have the gift of beauty or anything that made me special. I would write poems and stories about how I felt, my experiences and dreams. One day, when my class was given the assignment to write a story I wanted to add my experiences of feeling bullied and laughed at, but with a twist of triumph at the end, which is also reminiscent of my own life story many years later. ”
Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Noris De Jesus-Petrone’s poignant tale is an uplifting children’s story about a young girl who thinks she has nothing but soon learns that the beauty of her soul and the shining goodness in her heart are priceless commodities that will draw happiness and joy into her life.
In the town of Hunter there lives a young orphan named Julie. Although she is very poor, she supports herself by working in the local farms and feeding the pigs. The other kids in town like to tease her for her job and the way she smells, but that all changes on one unusual day.
After wishing that one day she could become someone special, the wonderful, magical blue pig, Amanda, begins to help turn Julie’s life and luck around.
There is a true and obvious message of not feeling accepted by others. Julie teaches us that it is important to look at ourselves in a positive way, and understand that we all have so much to contribute despite what others may say about us. We must believe it and when we do there is nothing that will stand in the way of our bright future.
Readers who wish to experience this inspiring work can purchase “The Pig Girl” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
