"It's not about what you have. It's all about what you do with what you got-that matters." -Bridgett Stewart
For a teen growing up in rural America, nothing can be more devastating than living isolated in poverty, being raised by a single mother with limited opportunities and literally having one's self-esteem torn from their soul by being verbally abused by peers. For Bridgett Stewart it has been her reality.
Already a shining example to millions of teens in America. Bridgett Stewart shares her incredible life about her amazing journey through unthinkable poverty and discusses everything from gaining her own self-respect when no one else would respect her because of where she lived. Surviving verbal abuse from classmates, living without a father, school pressures and her decision to use education as a vehicle from poverty while earning a 4.0 grade point average in tough and trying times. Bridgett's candid account through her childhood leading up to her very first date is eye opening in more ways than one. While her words of wisdom on topics such as self-esteem, alcohol and drugs and many others are years well beyond her youth and will be welcomed by all. Bridgett is America's shining example of perseverance and achievement. She inspires and motivates others to realize dreams can come true-NO MATTER WHAT.
Gr. 7-12. Stewart has an unpolished and raw but also articulate and heartfelt voice. Her diarylike account, written with White's assistance, describes growing up in a shack with no bathroom or running water in Slew's Quarter, Preston, Georgia. She remembers with searing clarity, at age five, hearing classmates talk about bubble baths and Friday night pizza and finding no match in her life for these things. She writes about the kind of verbal abuse heaped on youngsters who are poor, and her rage at the father who abandoned her. But Stewart had shrewd intelligence, deep religious faith, and a devoted mother, which allows her to tell readers about making her own way, using education and hard work to find a different way of living. Stewart has earned a touch of self-righteousness, and she has certainly earned the right to be heard. Her story should reach other teens who might find her life and her success as she prepares for college unimaginable. GraceAnne DeCandido
