Based on a Woo Story

By Fiaunia “Leeshia Lee” Watson

This is a coming of age story about a young girl name Era Walters, who is trying to survive and understand life in Orchard Manor, a housing project nicknamed "The Woo." This tale of heartbreak and triumph in the gritty mountains of Charleston, West Virginia, during the crack epidemic in the 90's, will show you a different side of where the country roads can lead. Can Era defy the odds and become a productive change in her environment or will she fall into the cracks and become a product of her environment? Every chapter provides the soundtrack of a life filled with choices and chances. A new age West Virginia tale where chances make champions and its survival of the illest.

Based on a Woo Story 2 is also available for preorder.
