"A powerful and painful memoir of an unconventional childhood, a traumatic youth, and a perseverant adulthood that is both compelling and heartbreaking. The ascendant arc of Layla’s life holds a plethora of hope, and the author writes of her own dynamic life with maturity, sensitivity, and grace. Millions of people experience trauma and hardship when they're young, but a small percentage of those people can recount their experience with such emotion and power. Despite My Odds is a revelatory and bold disclosure of one writer’s most vulnerable truths." Self-Publishing Review
