Collette Hairston, a loving grandmother, has completed her first book “The Thrown Away Kids”: a gripping and potent personal chronicle of a tantalizingly dark upbringing.

The author says that, “It took her years to turn her life around. The biggest disappointment was being thrown away, along with her dreams, hopes, and goals.” She describes her novel as a “tantalizing, sexual account of life for an urban women.”

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Collette Hairston’s poignant tale shares a life of experimentation, mistakes and solitude that lead to self-realization and the desire to help others.

In “The Thrown Away Kids,” readers follow a sheltered girl through the streets of New York as she navigates the most intimate parts and secret details of life. Collette Hairston uses her disappointments, hurt, and self-destruction throughout life to draw inspiration and hopes others can learn from her struggles.

Readers who wish to experience this intimate and unrelenting work can purchase “The Thrown Away Kids” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
