I recently read an interesting book by Amy Lorenzo called, "What We Are Made Of." Her story is unique yet I was able to relate to her locations and feelings. Through her story Lorenzo showed me a different view of places I had been and seen. Her observations drew me into her story and kept me thoroughly engaged. Lorenzo's honesty and transparency about her life and her family give us a sense of observing while being there. She puts me in the story through the use of details, descriptions, and feelings.
Amy has a personal story about living in Sacramento, CA. It is a story of culture, diversity, and environment. You can learn more about Amy through her Facebook page: "What We Are Made Of," and you can order her book through Xlibris.com.
