A Girl Named Job from author Marie Antoinette tells a story of a young girl who within the 407 pages, you will see develop into a young woman who has her eye on the prize.

This authors pens a heart wrenching tale within the pages of her debut. This is a truly a story about beating the odds but more importantly turning negatives into positives. A Girl Named Job doesn’t just tells a story of a young lady from Trenton, New Jersey transforming into a beautiful woman, but she also does not shy away from her trials and tribulations as well as her personal heartbreaks and betrayal. If her upbringing was any indication of what was going to happen, readers could easily sympathize with little Marie but upon completion readers alike would see that in order to stand comfortably and confidently in her skin she had to over come all obstacles

I applaud this author for letting her readers into her inner world and life and you will not be disappointed in fact you will be inspired to know that you can turn your dreams into realities and not end up a statistic if you truly want to and without a doubt Marie Antoinette wanted just that.

Readers will enjoy A Girl Named Job, because it is just that real and they will feel as though at some point in time they also were too just like a girl named job. You could easily say that due to her circumstance she was destined for failure but the author did not give up and kept growing and the inner strength not only made her stronger but also very much wiser in her decision making.

This is a debut novel from Marie Antoinette and I am truly impressed with the authors ability to convey the true feelings and emotion of her characters’ and I felt as though I was right there. Absolutely a story of inspiration for all!

A Girl Named Job will not disappoint because just like a fiction novel this book has heartaches, betrayal, dishonesty, triumphs and victories and to think this is the authors real life!

What did I like about this book?
I enjoyed that the author took a risk by giving the reader an up close and personal look at her life with out any fears.

What did I dislike about this book?
It was a long book and even though it still didn’t take away, I see the author didn’t want anyone to have any questions. She explained everything and walking away you got a better understand of the author.

What could the author do to improve the book?
Nothing, this was this authors personal memoirs and who am I to critique the author on the life she lived or the growth she has made in pursuit of happiness.
