This book gives you an inside look to what happens when you get in with the wrong group of friends. Sadly this happens to many people. I really enjoyed this book. I would recommend it to people as it was a great read and makes you think about that life style.

5 stars all the way

This was a good book! Joan Sample gives a book that touches the lives of many. It is reality. Some things we don’t see upfront. The story goes through the life of a woman who is overcome by the things of the world. She is heavily influenced by friends and others and her life turns upside down.

Joan brings a hearfelt story. This book is a must read for young girls; a wake up call for our generation and the generations to come. Great read!

Life Will It Take Me Under is a beautiful tale of struggle and triumph. Joan L. Sample writes a heart-wrenching Novel that takes you on a journey with her main character Kimberly Washington. Kimberly has her life thrown to the wind and where she falls only the reader will know. I enjoyed the read and want to see more from this Author.
