An Entertaining Contemporary Fiction Novel Jan. 27 2009
By Urban Reviews - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Thomasina "Tee" Hodges has always had her life under control. Tee raised her daughter Amber by herself after her divorce and has been riding high ever since. But everything changes in an instant when Tee is suddenly laid off and doesn't tell anyone. To make matters worse, she just threw a big wedding for Amber and then wakes up the next morning with the best man. Tee's average normal life is now suddenly spiraling out of control towards bankruptcy. Tee is suddenly faced with having to make some huge sacrifices in order to survive. Will she be able to depend on herself to get things together?

What Doesn't Kill You is an entertaining novel by Virginia DeBerry and Donna Grant. DeBerry & Grant once again brings us a tale that is thought-provoking and relatable. What makes this story stand out is the way that it is told. By having the main character Tee tell this story in the first person, it makes you feel as if your best girlfriend is talking to you. There are some very timely issues in this novel such as jobloss and impending bankruptcy that readers will be able to identify with. This is not a fast-paced read, but you can see the gradual development of this story as you get further into the book. You will find yourself rooting for Tee to get everything back on track. What Doesn't Kill You is a great novel filled with realistic situations and smart, sassy humor.

Real Life Jan. 30 2014
By justme - Published on Amazon.com

Tee Hodges is the main character in What Doesn't Kill You: A Novel by authors Virginia DeBerry and Donna Grant. Tee's life spirals downward after she is let go from the job that she helped build. From there a series of humbling misfortunes causes Tee to realize who has always had her back. This story is so realistic with its trials and tribulations that you wonder if Tee could overcome all the obstacles that she endured. A line from book states, "We start where we start, and some people get a head start, but that doesn't mean that they will always finish first." This holds true in this novel and our lives as well.

Inspirational Story for the New Year! Jan. 25 2014
By Stephanie the "Sci-fi Junkie" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this book! I liked that the story was told from 1st person--it made the story more personable. Tee's experiences represented the rough times that many Americans are going through in our country's volatile economy. Her solutions for survival are inspirational to anyone going through financial and emotional setbacks.

This book is very appropriate for the new year...new year....new goals....new solutions!

EyeCU picks another winner. Jan. 14 2014

I really loved reading this book. I enjoyed the everyday relatable character interactions. If you wants to read a good down to Earth novel, then this is it. It was a nice quick read that wasn't very complex. Each character was developed to have their own existence in the book.

Great read Jan. 14 2014
By Mz.Black - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book was a great read. It was very relatable because it touched on things that are happening to people on some degree daily. Walking away from a home or downsizing because you can no longer afford your dream home. Settling for an imperfect relationship out of fear. Another thing is living beyond your means or simply not being fully prepared for hiccups in your financial future. How many of us have robbed Peter to pay Paul or used our plastic as if it was a source of income? I enjoyed experiencing going on Thomasina's journey with her. It is so true. "What Doesn't Kill You" will most definitely make you stronger or at least wiser.
