Publisher's Summary

In this gripping memoir, Randall James tears open his life story, taking the listener on a breathless roller coaster ride through his childhood, teen and adult life. Despite years of neglect, poverty, and violence, Randall graduates from high school and heads out into the world. 

But his shaky foundation soon leads to drastic consequences, including a suicide attempt. After battling alcohol, marital and health issues, Randall ultimately learns that life's roller coaster doesn't always conclude with a fairy tale ending. What's most important is not the ride itself, but who is with you along the way. 

At times hilarious, at times harrowing, this candid account of one man's struggle, growth, and transformation points to the meaning beneath the hardships of life.
