My Life in Black and White
The Gist: Ever since she was a little girl, Lexi has been told how beautiful she is. So it's no surprise that her looks is what she believes defines her as a person. When a sudden car accident leaves her with multiple face fractures and scars, she is suddenly looking at life from a whole new perspective. We follow Lexi as she adjusts to life without a beautiful face. Lexi soon realizes that things are not the same. Her friends abandon her and she cannot turn to her boyfriend, Ryan, for any comfort. However, she doesn't let her lack of beauty define who is as a person.

This is a very well-written book of poetry spanning the lifetime of one man. It delves into the reaches of all the emotions we, as humans, experience in our lifetimes. It is a great read for moments of relaxation, introspection, and study. Jaime Gonzalez was born on the highlands of the Island of Puerto Rico, and at the age of twelve, he moved to mainland USA where he grew up in Philadelphia. It was there that he fell in love with the Mojave Desert and its treeless mountains. After a few years living in California, Jaime returned to Philadelphia and decided to join the Philadelphia Police Department where he served faithfully close to thirty years, while at the same time serving in the Pa Army National Guard reserve.
