Publisher's Summary

Are you a foster youth worried about aging out and becoming an adult? Stressed out about life after foster care? Want to live an incredible life but feeling overwhelmed? Crystal Lindsey, MBA can help!

Crystal could have died a thousand horrible deaths leading up to the night her mother tried to murder her. She was 11 years old when her schizophrenic, bipolar, drug-addicted mom attempted to kill her with an ice pick handle and then disappeared with everything Crystal owned. Shortly after, Crystal's maternal grandmother informed her that she was disowned from the family. She didn't know her biological father's identity and her sister had run away. Crystal was all alone in the world when she was forced into foster care. And she was about to age out of the foster care system with nothing except the clothes on her back....

From this inauspicious beginning, entirely without support, Crystal Lindsey has created a system for survival allowing her to thrive and develop her emotional resilience. Crystal knows trauma unlocks superpowers, and she has developed biohacks to show you how to discover your own superpowers using daily gratitude and grit psychology. She gives you a story of hope and optimism while "getting real" about the challenges you will face in adulthood after growing up with abuse and/or aging out of foster care. In Crystal's version of life, it is possible to be successful as a former foster youth. You can improve your life experiences with these daily practices that are founded in proven bioscience and grit psychology. Her system allows you to harness your superpowers by cultivating the grit and gratitude already within you.

Grit & Gratitude gives you specific tools so that you can optimize your brain, tap into your superpowers, and have the daily rituals you need to succeed in life after abuse and after foster care. From a former foster youth and former college professor, Crystal’s Top 10 Biohacks act as a "self-care buffet" to help foster youth discover their unique potential. Crystal's tailored workshops and seminars have already dramatically changed the lives of hundreds of former foster youth as they exited the foster care system, and now she can help you create your blueprint for success using grit psychology.

Like Angela Lee Duckworth and Dave Pelzer, Crystal Lindsey will teach you the daily techniques to optimize your present and future self! This is a must-have book if you are a current foster youth, former foster youth, adult child of abuse, foster care administrator, or even a foster parent who is considering fostering teenagers. No one should consider adopting a teenager without first listening to Crystal’s real-world application of grit psychology. She teaches you how to foster resilience in the face of adversity.
