Unbecoming You is a coming of age story that celebrates all that is unique in each of us, especially those most shunned and misunderstood in society. It forces us to take a look into our darkness as a means to discover the light within us. The stories of a gender-fluid boy, a single mom, an ex-convict, a lesbian and a female genital mutilation survivor play out through the book, as the author seeks to challenge the reader to unveil that which is hidden within. A painful yet triumphant reveal about the Self, this conscious journey into the unknown brings to the forefront one universal truth: we are very similar even in our uniqueness. We must "Unbecome" who we think we are in order to fulfill our dreams of a new earth. Unbecoming You gives us a chance to collectively shift our consciousness to that of more love and more kindness.
Every now and then a story comes along that uplifts and encourages us to become more than we can ever be. It is uncommon, however, to find a story that reminds us that we are already all that we want to be regardless of our circumstance and origin. Ananda, is a beautifully crafted story that whispers to the unbreakable spirit in us all; a story of a girl, who against all odds recognized and held onto the hope that she was far greater than the challenging circumstances she was born into. Hated by her own mother and with very little formal education, will she ever realize the big dreams which filled her mind and sweetly broke her heart? Is hope bigger than any tragedy, or will she soon discover, like many countless others, that sometimes dreams are just vultures which eventually swallow us alive?
