Luisauny is a shy girl from deep in the heart of the Dominican Republic. She lives in a small, tight-knit community called Bobita. Nearby green mountains wait to be climbed, a river shaded by trees promises an escape from the tropical heat, and a short drive in any direction leads to the loveliest beaches in the world. However, there is a dark side to life in Bobita. Something deep inside her is tearing her apart.

Will her faith carry her through struggles with bullying, self-doubt, anxiety and depression? Can she overcome the stigma of mental health in the Dominican Republic? Read the astonishing true story of a brave girl and her harrowing journey, which has only just begun!
