The Darkest Gray
by V Lyric Parker
A downward spiral of teenage promiscuity, an ever-growing emotional distance between her and her family, a string of abusive relationships, depression and a suicide attempt, which lands her in a mental institution, shatter Neka’s faith in God. Though her tribulations persist, she ultimately finds peace within and even makes peace with God—and dares to find her rainbow amidst the darkest gray.
