These are the seemingly everyday women whose stories inspired (Extra)Ordinary Women - and whose resilience and strength will inspire women around the world.
These women have defeated breast cancer, addiction, and homelessness. They have lived through the Boston Marathon bombing and hundreds of surgeries. They have traveled from foreign lands to create a better life. They have endured brain cancer, abuse, and poverty. They have given a home to dozens of special-needs children. They have known loss, pain, and fear.
They are survivors. And they share their stories to empower other women who need something - and someone - to believe in.
(Extra)Ordinary Women reminds us of the amazing stories that we find all around us when we open our eyes, hearts, and minds.
And these extraordinary women remind us to never give up, never quit, and never underestimate the power of a woman.
Kristin Bartzokis is herself an extraordinary woman. Born with Treacher Collins syndrome, a craniofacial abnormality, Bartzokis experienced a childhood marked by surgeries and medical procedures, all while she became a champion gymnast. As an adult, she has proudly accepted the challenge to stand out. A marathoner, designer, author, and advocate, Bartzokis has been featured by Cosmopolitan and is a contributor for The Mighty. She released her Benjamin Franklin Award-winning memoir, Diary of a Beautiful Disaster, in 2017 and blogs at diaryofabeautifuldisaster.com.
Kristin Bartzokis, known for her trailblazing memoir Diary of A Beautiful Disaster, reminds readers that how a person responds to adversity is what makes her extraordinary. The ten women featured come from a variety of backgrounds, and the beauty of unity in diversity is exemplified in each story. In each woman's story you are likely to find an aspect of her life to connect to your own."
"The women of Extraordinary Women not only share in experiencing the kinds of adversity most of us fear, they share an indomitable resilience of spirit. Their stories must be told, their ordeals understood, because the human collective can only benefit from their power."
"These are true, emotional stories of perseverance. The remarkable women profiled survived incredibly difficult times, and their life stories are retold with compassion."
"It's well worth staying up late for. Each story is different yet expertly told and completely absorbing."
