WE ALL HAVE AN UNTOLD STORY
THE TRUTH WE KNOW, BUT DON'T TALK ABOUT. ~MOKITA
Resi has meticulously re-sculpted her delicate and immeasurable scars, crafting an outer shell of confidence, poise, charisma and beauty. But as she chases love, her father’s acceptance, and her place in the world, her past continues to crack its veneer. Caught between the traumas of her past and the realization that her future may hold everything she fears, Resi must find the strength to accept a life that she never expected.
