From one of the stars of A&E’s hit reality show Dog the Bounty Hunter comes an empowering memoir that can inspire others to break the cycle of abuse and forge happiness out of extreme adversity.
When most little girls play house, they might imagine two happy parents with several well-behaved children, pretty rooms, flowers in the yard, and a white picket fence near the sidewalk. Me? I just wanted parents who could stand to be in the same room with each other. . . . From my youngest days I always knew that God had something better in store for me, that He had a better life waiting for me. —from the Introduction
The ninth child of bounty hunter Duane Chapman, twenty-five-year-old Lyssa Chapman has overcome an upbringing that can only be called tragic. In her piercing memoir, she shares the details of her harrowing life and her faith journey and offers advice and solutions for readers who feel overwhelmed by their own dysfunctional circumstances.
I admire Lyssa’s courage to share her personal story in hopes that she can help other young girls to make wise decisions. She had a very traumatic childhood and overcame many obstacles throughout her young life. This is an honestly written memoir that will touch you when you read through her experiences. She shows strength and courage in her journey which eventually leads her to God. If you enjoy reading memoirs or want to share this story with a teenage girl in your life then I would recommend this book to you. I believe you will find it inspirational and moving.
