Dear Mama Book Reviews
Jacqueline Moore created a short narrative about a teenager girl who is being bully because she and her mother are homeless. “Dear Mama” is one of those books will not get a happy ending. God spoke to Jacqueline to minister to the reader by writing a short narrative about the affect of bullying can do to a person and their family. Briana was being teased on and got jump by some bad teenager girls. The worst part not only being physically beaten but verbally beaten as well by these bullies. They told Briana to kill herself because nobody don’t like her or care about her. Briana really felt that was true. She didn’t wanted to reported because she felt that the bullying wasn’t going stop and fear of the consequences for telling on them. He mother Beverly tried her best to found shelter until they get back on their feet but Briana felt that God letting her mother lose her job and home. Briana was in so much emotional pain that she felt that her life isn’t worth to live for. Briana left her mother a letter and explain to her mother why she kill herself.
Only if Briana reached out to an Adult at her high school things could have turn different. I can relate myself because I was being judged by my so called friends for not having my own place and not having a job. I tried my best to get a job but at the time I couldn’t find work even though I did went on many interview. They constantly judge me until finally I went through a major depression disorder and anxiety. The worst part is they were judging me and wasn’t offer to help me. Finally I wanted to take my own life but God steps in and directed me to the hospital to received help with a licensed professional deals with Mental Health. Even when i decide to get help, there were many told me that I don’t have faith in God at all. Christians or saved person shouldn’t be depressed. I told them, who told you that lie. You can pray all you want to God but if you don’t seek medical help then your prayer and faith without work (action) is dead. God wants us to take care of our temple and our mind to do his ministry. Thank God, I didn’t take my life because I would have miss out on life and opportunity. God wants us to live and enjoy life. Also I got rid off all my so called friends and it felt like I took out the trash. Thank You Jacqueline Moore for writing this tough subject to minister to the readers about the aftermath of the acts of bullying. I believe that God allow you to guide the pen to share a story that is very painful to encourage somebody to reach out to somebody for help and not to keep it inside. To the people who like to bully or judge somebody, please realizes that your actions will do so much damage to that person. You should never judge or make fun of somebody because of their shortcoming. With the rise of people being homeless, you don’t know their story. If you don’t have any intention to help then keep your mouth shut. Also we need to stand up to bullying and not to allow it at all. This book is recommend for everyone to read so you will know the affects of being bully. If you or somebody that you know are being bully please speaks up. Somebody will help you if you reach out to them.
