Life, In Spite of Me is a book that draws you in with description and raw emotions. It is filled with miracles, faith, hope, and trusting in God. The book is also about how Kristen Anderson turned her life toward God and helping others through her tragic experiences. My favorite quote in the book was this: "It helps me so much to know that even when I don't have plans for myself, I can trust that God has plans for me. Even when I don't have hope, he has hope for me. And even when I don't see a future for myself, he does. I just have to have faith.". This book is a true inside look into the life of someone who has dealt with depression and suicide.
