About the book:
Life seemed happy and ordinary for smiling, imaginative, five-year old Terry Sidford. She had two loving parents, a brother, and a sister, all of whom lived in a beautiful house with a pool on the Southern California coast during the 1970s. Life couldn’t have been more perfect. Until… One night Terry unexpectedly heard her parents arguing loudly, and in that instant everything changed. Over a short time, the arguing escalated, her mother started drinking heavily, and her father eventually moved out, leaving Terry and her siblings to deal with an alcoholic single mom. So begins the journey of an intuitive child growing in a split family where each member struggles to survive. Terry’s story starts with sadness, resentment, and confusion, but ends in forgiveness, trust, and love, with a lot of lessons learned in between. She shares the tools you need to survive, and even thrive, as a result of your past experiences, no matter how relentless they may feel..

In an attempt to escape her mother’s issues with alcohol, Terry and her sister run away from home one night to join their alternative-lifestyle father, in the hope that they might #nd some adult stability. "us begins Terry’s unconventional “Wonder Years,” in which she endures an absentee mom, teenage self-improvement bootcamp, and an educational system that misdiagnoses her sensitivity and intuitiveness as learning disabilities.

“After experiencing a tumultuous, unconventional childhood, I can safely say that I now know what truth is, it will set you free, and I fully trust it,” said Terry. “I recognize truth by unconditionally seeing everything for what it is, rather than making it something di%erent to "t a convenient narrative.” Truth brings courage and courage opens you up to love. With these three things you can transform your life of trials to triumphs and success. Terry wants to help everyone learn how to recognize their own truth, be courageous, and lead with love regardless of their life experiences. “Which is why I wrote this book.”
