Welcome to my diary, my journey, as I tripped and crawled through the darkest time in my life- when I witnessed  people that I held incredibly close to me shatter my very existence with their words and actions. The things within this book spine are extremely raw and exceptionally real. You and I are going to get very close, the details in this book, although oddly general, are incredibly specific. Yes, I realize what I just said and as you read my words you will see what I mean. As you silently gasp and mentally bitch slap me, please be kind because my story is just that – my story. It is not any more or less special than yours. In fact the only difference between our stories are the choices we made at each of the crossroads in our lives. For most of my life the choices I made were not based on my happiness but on everyone else’s. This book describes what I have experienced in my journey to finding my happiness and hopefully never letting it go. Sadly, it took me thirty six years to find the strength I need to detoxify my life and self view and find someone who is worthy of my awesomeness. Thirty six years to shatter the negative foundation I had built shatter the ultimate representative I created to hide behind and begin the process of building a new foundation. Only this foundation will be built on strength, confidence and above all, happiness. So take a minute or thirty and sit with my story for a while. You never know what you might find out.

In Your Crossroads. Your Choice, author EJ Apicello talks about her journey as she trips and crawls through the darkest time of her life. The subject matter is tough, it’s hard, raw and real, and sometimes brings you to the verge of tears with how emotionally shattering it is. It’s a journey of not giving up, of seeking happiness, and of discovering it in sometimes unlikely places.

It’s a fast read at just over 100 pages, but it’s an emotional rollercoaster that will leave you breathless for a while after you stopped reading. I liked the comparison of life and choices with Crossroads, and that one choice may lead to one road, and another choice may lead to a different path altogether.

The writing was solid, and fast-paced, and I wasn’t bored once while reading, in fact, I was enthralled. The chapters were short, which made the pacing even faster, and made me not want to stop until I finished the book.

If you’ve ever felt lost or stuck, or hopeless because you feel like there’s no way out, or no right choice to make, then you should read this book and pull strength from it. In the end, it is your life, and your choice, but this book can express that far more eloquently than I can.
