After 7 years of divine timing, “The Hope Dealer” Renata A. Hannans presents the followup to her acclaimed debut, P.S. Never Give Up Hope.
I’m Here For The Girls chronicles the lives of 11 women and how men played a role in their incarceration. Traumatic experiences, including addiction, domestic violence, sexual abuse, loyal commitment to young love and devastating, accidental circumstances are all explained throughout the poignant pages.
These daughters-mothers-wives lay their hearts on the line while sharing how they repeatedly, or unexpectedly, ended up behind bars. Through self-reflection via their own words, each chapter pieces together true details about the girls who deserve to have their stories told.
Renata A. Hannans nationally known as The Hope Dealer, is a Jacksonville native who earned her B.S. in Social Science from Jacksonville University. Renata’s niche for criminal law was discovered at an early age, immediately stemming from her recollection of sitting in on her first trial as a public observer. As a former Case Manager, she was tasked with the responsibilities of guiding at-risk high school students during the pivotal moments of their adolescent years. Since publishing her first book, P.S. Never Give Up Hope, in 2013 she has founded an advocacy organization, P.S. Never Give Up Hope, Inc., focused on reducing recidivism and promoting literacy.
