In Running in Heels by Mary A. Perez, readers are introduced to Mary a young girl living with an unstable mother while trying to survive in her mother’s world. Mary learns to live with the life she has been dealt and soon realizes that she will have to survive on her own if she is going to continue to live. Mary’s life takes several twists and turns as she starts a relationship with an older man. Mary becomes a teenager mother trying to not be like her mother and is soon someone’s wife. It is just sad that it takes Mary so long to see the true color in the people around her that didn’t mean her any good.
As I read Mary’s story while wiping tears from eyes I am thankful Mary had praying grandparents to help restore her faith. Mary turns her life around through her faith to make a better life for her children. Running in Heels is an emotional yet inspirational book that shows one girl’s determination to change her life for the betterment of her children while forgiving the parents that where not there for her.
