Bankruptcy Didn't Break Me by Kassondra R Lewis is a non-fiction self-help and motivational guide based on the experience and expertise of the author regarding bankruptcy. The book begins with an overview of Lewis's differing circumstances prior to making the last-resort decision of filing for Chapter 7, which she has done three times. Lewis then goes into detail on what bankruptcy is, and what it is not, dispelling myths alongside giving sound facts to ensure there is no misunderstanding of what's potentially at stake. Where this guide differs is in the emphasis on how to rebuild after a bankruptcy; planning that is required to make the most of a new, debt-free life with the rebuilding of credit and, ultimately, securing a home loan.
Kassondra R Lewis brings a no-holds-barred approach to Bankruptcy Didn't Break Me, laying out her personal history as both a bankruptcy survivor and an experienced underwriter and loan processor in the mortgage industry. I was particularly impressed by the comfortable narrative, which feels akin to a friend advising you over coffee. There's no shame, just support and guidance for when a reader might feel at their absolute lowest. The tone is consistently proactive, encouraging strict adherence to a plan, and staying the course even when it seems you have just had a weight removed from your shoulders. The detailed insight into the world of mortgage lending goes above and beyond the standard fare in similar books, making Lewis's a standout. This is a tightly written and concise self-help book that will be of great use to many. Very highly recommended.
