Here’s a brief synopsis:
Despite every reason not to, Steph savors the little things wherever she goes – like flowers in a field, sunlight through the trees, and playing with her brother, Bobbie. But, no matter how often she escapes into the light, darkness always threatens to pull her backward.
Moving thirty times before she was seventeen, traversing between campgrounds, fully-furnished homes, and homeless shelters, Steph’s family takes starting over to an extreme. But in spite of the close calls with disasters, both natural and man-made, Steph believes that if she is good enough, strong enough, or works hard enough, one day she’ll become worthy of love and safety.
Who she ultimately chooses to become and if she’ll transcend her circumstances are questions Steph must answer for herself more than once.
What people are saying:
Steph Silver’s memoir, “Anywhere USA,” takes readers on a breathtaking journey through her tumultuous life growing up in a dysfunctional family. The captivating narrative style and raw honesty immediately draw you into her world, evoking both amazement and a profound sense of connection as you ride the rollercoaster of emotions alongside her. Throughout the pages, Steph shares stories of alcohol-fueled violence, the challenges of a nomadic lifestyle, and the complexities of the only type of love she knows. But amidst the struggles, her deft touch of humor adds depth to this compelling and gripping story. What sets this memoir apart is Steph’s unwavering resilience and optimism, shining brightly in the face of daunting challenges. Her vivid descriptions take you on a heartfelt journey from campsites and shelters to Connie Carlson’s dance class and the experience of eating grilled cheese sandwiches made with an iron. Through her authentic storytelling, you bear witness to her personal triumphs, profound realizations, and transformative growth as the young girl’s voice gracefully evolves into that of a wise and resilient woman. “Anywhere USA” stands as a powerful testament to the enduring power of hope and hard work, inspiring us all to find strength even in life’s darkest moments. “Anywhere, USA is a triumph.” – Steven Ryan
