Street Wise and Alley Raised – Synopsis
Kelly had it all – a devoted mother, a father who loved to hang out shirtless, and four brothers who wanted nothing more than to aim hockey pucks at her and shove her in the trash can. What could possibly go wrong? In this enlightening, entertaining memoir, Kelly recounts her childhood in south St. Louis. With stories of defending herself with a lunchbox, learning how to be a miniature badass, and growing up to be the woman that everyone wanted her to be, Kelly shows her true inner nature. Inside, she also admits her vulnerability – to the demands of this world, to the societal pressures of doing “just what was expected”, to mounting financial and emotional constraints. Kelly’s just like all the rest. She has her ups and downs. And in this volume you’ll see how she started out so promising, but, like so many, eventually cracked under the pressure. Follow along and see yourself in her life, see your family in hers, and laugh along with her stories of rollicking fun and frolic from the midwest to the shores of Ireland. Kelly’s a real person. One who’s finally connected her inner badass. And she wants to make that available for everyone else. Pick up “Street Wise and Alley Raised” and see for yourself just how easy it is to lose your sense of self in this world.
