How L. J. Smith’s Books Saved My Life

on 25 March 2011. Posted in Articles

By Jessica Sherman

L. J. Smith’s books saved my life.  That’s a pretty strong claim.  But it’s the truth, and I don’t think that I’m the only one out there who could say it.  I’m not just talking about saving my adolescent sanity.  I’m talking about books that actually changed my way of thinking so that I could see the world through different eyes.

I strongly agree with Miss Jessica Sherman because if it weren't for L.J. Smith's books and a few really good friends I wouldn't be here. With her books, just as Miss Jessica Sherman said, there is an identifiable character for every person.

What Jessica Sherman says is so true. There is a character of Lisa's for everyone. The things teens and even some adults go through is just terrible. Lisa's books offer an escape for so many people.

That was a beautiful, honest artical. Luckily, I can say that things like that haven't happened to me, at least not serious things. Sadly, I see it in school all the time, but just as Jessica said, remember that there is more to life than school. Be strong while you have to be and then enjoy life :)

Like this article beautifully stated before, there are characters for everyone to identify with. I used to keep my head down and just look at people for what they projected. I never looked deeper... Until I read one of L.J Smith's books. I started to look deeper and try to accept people and see them for who they are. I also started to believe in love again. I met my boyfriend before I read her books and just assumed he was another playboy type who saw women as conquests, like Ash. However, like Ash, he turned out to be full of love for me and full of protectiveness for me and his family. I gained new sight from her books.

When I was in the hospital, I was very bored and my grandma brought me one of L.J books. Those books the Night World series changed my life it taught me how to be a strong person and I needed it. It was already two and a half months I was in the hospital I needed some encouragement and some strength and she gave it to me through her books. So I thank her and now I own all of that series and have read each book almost three times each. Thank You L.J Smith you have saved my life
