A shocking firsthand account of a woman's fight for justice while being wrongly imprisoned, and the incredible stories of the women she meets on the inside.Anait Alvarado was imprisoned for a crime she didn't commit, and forced to fight for survival, edible food, decent living conditions, and a return to her young children. Despite her American citizenship, she was left to linger in a Guatemalan prison, at the mercy of a corrupt judicial system, fighting to be freed--and working to make the best of her situation in the meantime.
This remarkable memoir is the inspiring true story of battling corruption, but also an introduction to the nameless women who linger in prison. There are other people wrongly accused, as well as those whose crimes were committed out of desperation. We learn their stories and see how even in the most deplorable of conditions, friendship, kindness, and humanity can persevere.
In Still Standing, Anait 's fight for justice is told in full detail for the very first time, and it raises the question of if a terrible, unexpected event happened to us, could we too persevere?
