LOS ANGELES, June 22, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Jojo 1Love is pleased to announce the release of her first children’s book, U R Not Alone: An Illustrated Book About Childhood Trauma, Mental Illness, and Hope. The touching story tackles difficult topics with tenderness and love as the author introduces Queenie, a lonely and sad young girl who faces a monster at home, mean kids at school, and a mentally ill mother. On June 27, 2022, National PTSD Awareness Day, the pioneering children’s book will be available for purchase.
According to Jojo 1Love, "My hope for the book is that it will help give a voice to children in abusive and neglectful situations (and to adult survivors) so we all may know that we are not alone, and we are worthy of love just the way we are. I wish someone had told me that as a kid."
This beautifully illustrated book tells the poignant story of Queenie, her challenges, and her transformative discovery. According to the author, "She tries everything she can think of to be perfect, so she doesn’t upset the monster, but he still finds reasons to hurt her. Queenie feels completely hopeless until one day she sees another kid crying and together they discover they don’t have to be alone."
More than just a children’s book, U R Not Alone is a labor of love for the author. "A few years ago, a friend and I were talking about our rough childhoods, and I said, ‘Wouldn’t it have been cool if we knew each other back then? It wouldn’t have changed things at home but at least we wouldn’t have been alone.’"
1Love’s breakthrough children’s book addresses complex subjects such as childhood trauma, mental illness, and depression, all while offering young readers in similar situations comfort and hope. "My dream is that you find each other like Queenie and King did. Please remember to be patient with and kind to each other since we don’t know what someone is going through at home."
