When Elle Shane was a child, she had no idea what was in store for the rest of her life. That’s what being human is all about. Things happen, and people change. You learn to make the best of it.
In When it Rains, it Pours, Shane offers a collection of stories and memories of a girl that focus on adolescent, teen, and young adult life. This memoir gives an overview of her life growing up in Florida and Oklahoma, explaining the hardships of growing up in a broken home among the first of many, many misfortunes to take place.
Shane addresses mature topics such as alcohol, sexual assault, drugs, and domestic abuse as they all played a role in her life. While these references may be disturbing, she hopes to give a voice to other young men and women who may share similar experiences, and she seeks to end stigmas around these issues. We all have different stories, and this is Shane’s.
