LIFE AFTER: My Journey from Starvation to Salvation  
Oct. 28, 2017
Author:  Ariana Aboulafia
Category:  Non-fiction: Narrative
Description:  Ariana Aboulafia was twenty-one years old when she was told by the physician that she had six weeks left to live, if she could not survive from the disturbing and mysterious symptoms – particularly the devastating nausea and drastic weight. But three months earlier, Ariana just graduated from college, fond of hiking and gym, enjoying the youth like the others and moved from Los Angeles to Miami to start law school. How did this happen?
In this compelling and thoughtful memoir, Ariana chronicles her stories and struggle to find the right diagnosis and her fight against a rare disease that almost caused her to starve to death. Told in a very simple and engaging manner, it is not just a journey to get through what Ariana was suffering and experiencing, to fully reveal a patient's physical, psychological and emotional statuses that are hard to be recognized by around in the normal healthy life, but a compelling and inspiring story about the healing power derived from family, love, friendship and faith, as well as her reflection and meditation about the society, philosophy, religion, marriage, life and the healthcare systems.
This page-tuner manuscript is completed at approximately 93,000 words, and has a similar tone to the New York Times bestseller Paul Kalanithi's "When Breath Becomes Air".
Rights available:  All languages world rights
Other information:  Ariana Aboulafia is a graduate of the University of Southern California with a BA in political science and a BA in law, history and culture, and a current student at the University of Miami School of Law.
