Loved every minute of reading this book! Couldn't wait until my quiet time every night to read and I read until my eyes wouldn't stay open any longer. So much I (and probably most of you out there) can relate to. Very inspirational!! Love, Love, Loved It!!! W. Forrester
Well done. Makes you realize that when life hands you lemons, lemonade is not a bad idea!! Many inspirational quotes to get you through a tough time. Proof that you CAN overcome the obstacles in life! Nolegirl

This is a truly inspirational book. I am not a big reader and I could not put this down until I was done. I am amazed at Shelly's determination and perseverance! This is a must read for anyone who has fallen upon hard times and needs to know that they are not alone and that God is in control of every situation, Shelley is living proof and she has blessed us all by sharing her story! I truly believe she will get her Happy Ending! L. Gault

I have to say I know the author so maybe the book has affected me in an emotional way. I cried when she cried and laughed when she laughed. This is a great inspirational story that everyone should take the time to read. A. Carter

I loved Shelley's book. It is to the point, down to earth, and Shelley holds nothing back. This book is such an inspiration for all family members to read. Thank you for letting us into your life and sharing your story. J.B. Ray

I highly recommend this book to anyone who has or is currently going through a struggle of some kind. The author is very honest in telling her story and upon completion of the book you will certainly gain inspiration from it. There are great analogies, sometimes brutal honesty, and even humor woven into this memoir; an interesting read. You WILL become motivated to positively ACT in your own life in some way! T. Lamia

This book is an inspiration for anyone. To read how Shelley overcame so many of life's trials and never seemed to be completely discouraged was inspiring! I am anxiously waiting for her next book! A must read to see how a person continues her life no matter how difficult life can be! Thank you Shelley for sharing your life with us! Pat

Great book! A truly inspirational story about overcoming tragedy and finding success. It is an easy read and you won't want to put it down! Highly recommend! MS

I Need the Happy Ending was just the kick in the pants I needed. Shelley's book was an inspiration, making me ask myself, what can "I" do to change my situation. T. Bankhead

My family has experienced the loss of a loved one by the hands of a drunk driver and it’s devastating. Shelley is a strong woman and inspirational. Her children are a fabulous reflection of who she is, full of grace and love. Her story is absolutely amazing! A. Beck

I don't read often but I had interest in this book for quite some time and for many different reasons so I read. From the very first paragraph I was hooked. It has a little girl (the author) writing in her diary about missing her sister who was killed by a drunk driver. Missing her, but not ready to die...yet.
This book exceeded every expectation I had. I have got to say, it reads great. Smart, and thought provoking but very easy to follow. I would recommend it to anyone dealing with loss or someone that has ever been on the receiving end of an abusive relationship, be it romantic of just a bully at school or work. In fact I just ordered 2 more for friends. A very inspirational story that gives you some hope when you've already given up. It will make you a better person. K.G

Sometimes the worst thing that happens to you in life, turns out to give you strength you never knew possible. This is Shelly's story.
When a tragic accident occurs, the ripple effects in a family can be devastating.
The author guides us though her heart break, and her resilience, to make a better life for her family. I loved this book. Meg

This is an honest story on the difficulties of overcoming and accepting loss. It was very empowering reading the strength it took this family to move forward and the positive encouragement this author gave herself and others. Definitely worth the read!! SM
