Heartfelt New Novel Chronicles of Real-Life Tragedies of a Debilitating Disease


USA – 03-05-2019 (PRDistribution.com) — Cracked Foundation, the latest young adult fiction novel from author Ta’She’Ana Banks is based on actual events and details the raw truths through a child’s perspective of growing up with a disease-stricken parent. The heart-breaking and candid novel reveals the effects of lupus and its impact on a family. As Banks expresses the youthful innocence page by page, painting pictures of hope for better days and walks through the journey of being forced to grow up fast. 


After volunteering at the Lupus Society of Illinois, Banks became inspired after hearing various real-life stories of many individuals diagnosed with numerous forms of lupus. According to the Lupus Foundation of America the staggering statistics state, “Lupus affects approximately 1.5 million Americans, five million people worldwide and of those diagnosed every 2 out of 3 are women of color.” Banks will be donating a profit contribution from her book sales to the foundation for continuous research for a cure. She hopes this novel will give people true insight into the difficulties of living with lupus and also inspire others whom face the same or similar challenges to find the courage to fight against all odds. 


The novel has already earned raving reviews with Courtney Cole, New York Times Bestselling Author whom stated, “Cracked Foundation is a breath-taking raw account of the effects of a disease, trauma and poverty, and the hope that prevails. I found myself holding my breath as the curtain was pulled back. This unvarnished debut is not to be missed!”. 


Banks’s words give a voice to lupus through the eyes of a child and provides an open door to the good, bad and the ugly truths to a family in sporadic turmoil.It’s an eye-opening debut that’s relatable to many readers with health challenges and those whom are directly involved such as family, friends and supporters. 


Banks currently lives in Chicago, Illinois.


Cracked Foundation was published in August 2018 with Gatekeeper Press. It’s available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble (online), iBooks, Google Play, Amazon Kindle and Kobo in all formats: eBook, paperback and hardcover.
