Synopsis

Who could overcome the depths of the foster care system and find their true love on the other side? Alexis and Justin started their journey in Flint and Detroit, MI, faced with the barriers of sexual, emotional, and physical abuse. Their environment shaped their identity and plagued their growth. After recognizing the toxic generational patterns placed upon them by family and society, they were forced to accept the task of redefining their perspective of themselves and the world in the midst of professing their love for one another.

Who created your definition of love and how is it displayed amongst your family, friends, and loved ones? Justin and Alexis give a detailed synopsis' of their path to discover normalcy while describing what love means to them based upon their experiences in the child welfare system. No matter your life story, background, or culture, this book will force you to question your idea of what is normal and who/what shaped your identity.

This book is broken down into four sections with unique themes. The first three sections are broken down by their individual personal narratives as they go on two individual journeys of self-discovery and healing so that they can be who they need to be for each other. This then leads to Agreement which is the final section of this book. Each chapter provides troubling statistics that both have had to face in order to be where they are today juxtaposed with what God says. Mingled with labels that have been placed upon them since childhood, this book discusses race (as an interracial couple), mental health, COVID-19, marriage, and more. It is a story of beating the odds and creating a life worth living while building their faith to influence others.

Less than 3% of foster youth have graduated from college but Alexis and Justin have overcome the statistics! They've launched two businesses (ROSE Empowerment Group and The Scholarship Expert) while also completing a combined 13 study abroad programs together. This memoir is a raw and vulnerable journey of healing and happiness as Justin and Alexis prepare for marriage in August 2020.

Atmosphere Press

Atmosphere Press is an independent full-service publisher for books in genres ranging from non-fiction to fiction to poetry to children's picturebooks, with a special emphasis on being an author-friendly approach to getting a book into the world. We're professional, honest, and kind.

Here’s what we stand for:

Honesty: because our mission is to be author-friendly, that means always giving honest advice about the ins and outs of the authorial life. We are dedicated to sticking by one of our founding precepts: “if I were the author, what would I want to know?”

Transparency: publishing is rife with dodgy behavior, from predatory vanity presses who promise the moon to traditional presses who make book changes without the author’s permission. We’re dedicated to letting you see the wizard behind the curtain, so you can rest easy that everything’s on the up and up.

Professionalism: with decades of combined years of writing, editing, designing, and publishing experience, our staff knows the ins and outs of the industry, and will be responsive and helpful. And of course, we will only publish books that truly contribute something wonderful to the world.

Kindness: as an author-friendly press, we take the word “friendly” seriously. A good publisher shouldn’t be just a business partner, but should be full of people you’d want to invite to dinner. Whether it be making a good joke or allaying your worries about being an author, kindness is our hallmark.

Making Your Book Awesome: we really can’t settle for anything less. We want our authors and their readers to be blown away when they first hold that book in their hands. It needs to look good inside and out, and feel good to the touch. And, of course, the words need to be top-notch, and our editors are devoted to making that the case.
