Discovering The Joy Within Reviews
Jordyn Thomas is a beautiful girl both inside and out but she doesn't feel like that. She has a beautiful spirit but is self-conscious about her size sixteen frame. She has always felt loved by her parents and her two best friends, Shondria and Kim but never from that special person. Until she met Carlos. Carlos was the upperclassman that all the girls wanted to be with but he chose Jordyn! Carlos was so kind, sweet and caring always buying Jordyn gifts or bringing her flowers or taking her to expensive restaurants. Jordyn loved Carlos and Carlos said he loved her, until his possessiveness kicked in and is when things started to turn for the worse. Life from there was a downhill slide and a uphill battle for Jordyn but it is up to her to discover the joy within herself.Discovering The Joy Within was a good read. It has a very thought provoking story that makes you want to help the characters but also lets you know that as long as you remember that God has your back there is nothing that you can't accomplish. This is an excellent read for bookclubs because it will cause very engaging conversations. Great Job Allyson, looking forward to reading more of your work.
