The incredible true story of a young man's struggle through college, failed relationships, suicide, financial hardship, infidelity, and reformation.

Charlene's Review:

Jamie Schoffman writes about what he knows best; his life. From his days struggling to finish college after dad's money runs out, to a girl that breaks his heart and leaves him suicidal, spending some time in a mental hospital, and then, to finding the love of his life, and almost destroying it, Jamie spills it all.

Jamie writes with a dry humor that, at times, is over the top. I cringed at the many ways he referred to Tallahassee, because after the first dozen, it got predictable. His honesty, however, of the pits of his despair, is commendable, and will likely touch some reader with a hope of overcoming depression. I felt the rawness of his pain, and he portrayed depression in a way that cannot dispute its effect on the sufferer.

There is great information in these pages, and if you find your way through the (occasional) "the world is out to get me" mindset, Jamie finds his way back to the world of the living. This is a story of finding love, of others and self.
