This a story that explores mature themes such as depression, cutting and sex. However, I don’t believe this story is only for adults, and in fact I believe that the issues it covers are important to many teenagers who secretly battle with self-hate and self-harm. I hope by sharing these sample chapters some people find some solace and a knowing that they’re not alone in what they’re going through. More
The original free sample of this book contained only the first chapter. However, I have been seeing more stories lately about people struggling with depression. Particularly stories of young adults struggling with cutting. I decided to expand the free sample to the first four chapters in order to share more of Jordan’s journey. Chapter 2-4 really dive in, no holds barred, into Jordan’s lowest point. I hope by sharing these chapters some people find some solace and a knowing that they’re not alone in what they’re going through.
This a story that obviously explores mature themes, and beyond dealing with depression and cutting it also talks openly about sex. However, I don’t believe this story is only for adults, and in fact I believe that the issues it covers are important to many teenagers who secretly battle with self-hate and self-harm. The book itself is not an attempt to show what depression is like. I myself have battled depression and I had no desire to glamorize the battle nor drag the reader down as I wrote. What I had wanted was to inspire people to remember that they have the strength the find themselves again. I won’t say how the book ends, but I do want to assure people that it is meant to uplift and show that you can have the life you want, no matter how you feel about yourself! Jordan’s journey takes her everywhere from Antarctica to Mongolia, and those kinds of adventures are possible for everyone. Even if far off travel isn’t your cup of tea, The Good Luck Knot aims to remind you that you deserve to live a fulfilling life. At times, Jordan’s story is ugly. It’s not always a pretty book. But it’s real, and it’s honest, and I hope it helps someone or a few people to feel a little bit of hope.
