This autobiography author Christine Rice has compiled will come full circle from innocence to broken, guilty to more guilty, all the way from rock bottom to today, victorious and fulfilling her heart's desire. It's a complicated circle indeed but not so uncommon to many that we unknowingly brush circles with on a regular basis. My Not-So-Ordinary Life is a fitting title of a confused child in search of identity, unconditional love and a resolve to find solutions to the millions of questions racing in her mind.
As she traces her life up to age 28, perhaps you too, like myself, will wonder how so much could be packed in such a short time. Her parents divorce would not just inevitably bounce her from place to place but that unsettled early life would emerge in her a rebellious teenager that would trek a fine line between sanity and mental collapse. Her journey is a must read because it opens one's eyes into better understanding the importance of a stable foundation. It also presents the reality that dreams and the will to succeed are ingredients of the human soul that will stare disappointment in the face and emerge victorious.
This isn't just her life- it may reflect a part of you or someone you know. Her daring feat of publishing this gives voice to sufferers today that there is a better tomorrow. As you trace her life from a high school dropout and drug abuser to a 4.0 GPA college degree with much in between, it will leave you refreshingly amazed.
What Rice has become today and what will greatly reflect her writing tomorrow, is all that encompassed her experiences. She is a published author of 4 books with two on the way. Additionally she offers publishing services in writing, editing, and formatting to name a few. I am convinced she is here to remain strong and perhaps hold up a feeble hand as needed. Our of the pit of despair she emerged with newfound hope. This page turning memoir is a book I recommend highly.
