CHICAGO - Sept. 23, 2016 - PRLog -- M.C. Lishay, a life skills coach, at Elite Life Skills Coaching, brings you the first of her 10 novels that are a part of the "Group Home Drama Series." In the series, Lishay chronicles the individual experiences of 10 girls whom she knew during her 20-plus years of experience in the child welfare field, working directly with thousands of abused and neglected wards of the state and their families.

In Lishay's first book, "Group Home Drama: Raven's Story," you'll meet Raven – a petite and athletic girl who shares her perspectives of living in a group home called Safe Haven with nine other girls. Raven started making the rounds in group homes at the age of 10 after the death of her parents.

In "Raven's Story," you'll see a complex and intimidating girl who struggles with her troubling past life, her sexuality, and acceptance from others while residing in a group home where organized raids on staff, thefts, physical and sexual abuse of residents, and unresolved resident grievances are common place.

According to Lishay, "Raven's Story" is a story of despair and hope that will make you angry, cry, and laugh. It's an inspirational story for children making the rounds through group homes. And it's a self-help guide for those in or contemplating entering social services or the child welfare field.

The electronic version of "Raven's Story" can be ordered at for $9.99. Also, the print version of the book is available for $15.99 at
