Gangsta to Glory

When she was four, author Angel Cabrera was a quiet, shy child who loved to dance and make others laugh. But when her parents divorced two years later, Angel’s life suddenly changed direction. As she attempted to find her place in a newly blended family, Angel embarked on a challenging coming-of-age journey; she struggled with depression, self-destructive behavior, and neglect. By the time she was fifteen, Angel had run away from home, tried alcohol and drugs, and shoplifted. Her life was quickly spiraling out-of-control.

Disowned and left to fend for herself in a crazy world, Angel details how she walked a dark path with Jerome, a mysterious Jamaican teenager who quickly took advantage of her innocence. As Angel chronicles her new life living with Jerome, she shares how she chose to ignore her intuition that something was wrong and began depending on him for everything, including her financial security. Once Jerome’s true identity was revealed, Angel was led down a dangerous path through crime, hopelessness, and corruption, soon discovering that she could count on nothing.

Gangsta to Glory is a true story of redemption as a young woman learns to rely on herself and her faith in God to survive in a tough world.
