Chameleon Girl 



Ferro has a great grasp for the psychology of hardship and change. She encourages physical empowerment as a path to emotional resilience. And she shares success stories that tug at the heart strings while also inspiring.


I laughed, I cried, I got pissed, I reminisced my past, I called my mom, it made me want to reach out to my dad who I haven't seen in five years. It rocked me to my core. This book is written with wit and a raw and pure truth you can rarely find unless confiding with a best friend, and even then, those deepest thoughts and feelings aren't even shared. 


Such a haunting, psychological thriller with piercing summoned a visceral response that left me devouring page after page!
