My Fight For Survival

My Fight for Survival by Misty Long starts off with a bang—Misty awakes in a jail cell, knowing that something has gone horribly wrong. We don’t know just how she ended up in that cell, only that Misty has been suffering for some time and putting her family through a tense sort of agony. What caused this stress and terror? What exactly is Misty fighting for?

Misty takes us back to her childhood and the beginning of her long battle with her unseen demons. From the very first chapter, we see how Misty’s life was intertwined with drugs at the hands of her unreliable mother. From the start, terrifying instances of assault happen to Misty, and the reader watches as she fights her way out of traumatizing experiences. While she suffers from mental health struggles and a cruel world around her, it’s clear that Misty is a strong woman as she perseveres.

I found My Fight for Survival incredibly inspiring. Misty acknowledges mistakes that she made while allowing herself to be vulnerable and share the hardships that were thrown her way. I loved watching her find herself with the births of her children and her desire to push through substance abuse to become a better person.

While this book is dark, it calls to light some of the sweeter moments in life. I really enjoyed hearing about Misty’s care for her children. I would have loved to read even more about Misty’s own childhood and the experiences she had growing up with her parents being separated. However, I found that the pieces of her life she did share were so impactful that it still made for a riveting story.

My Fight for Survival is an impassioned story about the importance of believing in yourself and fighting for the life that you want. I think anyone who needs a reminder that they have support around them and hope for a great world should read this book and hold Misty Long’s inspiration close to them.
