Has any book made an impact on your life?
"The Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood by Rebecca Wells. This follows Lousianans Mother & Daughter, Vivi & Sidda, and their friends, two groups of WOMEN who are just trying to deal with the happenings past & present in their lives and make it to the next day while remaining fiercely loyal to each other & themselves. This book taught me a lot about what being a friend truly is, what it means to come into your own as a woman & about authentically loving/ being loved by imperfect people, PARENTS & selves. One of those books I come back to at least once a year, every year."
