Review: Still Standing

Still Standing
Still Standing by K.S. Oliver

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is my first read by the author but would not be my last. Still Standing takes the readers on a journey of being a survivor. Although KS Oliver battles every day, she still finds the strength to be positive and move about her day. As outlined in this poetry book, the author has a strong support system and two sons that motivate her to fight through the pain each day. KS Oliver shows through the power of prayer, even when it is questioned, we can overcome our struggles. The author vividly displays how each day is a struggle and lets readers in on her innermost thoughts on the day she received her diagnosis.

This poetry book is very inspirational. You will have a range of emotions as you read through it. I applaud this young woman for bringing this debilitating disease to the forefront of society and letting readers know there is no "certain look" for those suffering from Lupus. She is a true SURVIVOR!
