- Every woman has her season and every season comes with a few showers. With the release of her new book, Single Girl Summer, Burrell hopes to equip women with a little bit of sunshine to better handle those rainy days.
- Three women from all walks of life find time to find themselves during vulnerable moments throughout each of their lives. They rebuild themselves by healing together. Each character possesses her own plight that doesn’t offset any other character, but compliments it. “I wanted to write a book about relationships and breakups about women in general,” she told the Defender.
