At 11 years old, Rachael Finley was left alone, squatting in a vacation rental in South Florida. What she wasn’t told leads the story, and her reinvention from foster child to internet phenom, cancer survivor to fashion designer, is as wild as her résumé, which runs the gamut from skate graphics, touring with heavy music bands, hosting TV, and acting as a (current) streetwear CEO. In this provocative, deeply personal memoir, Finley tells all, taking the reader by the heartstrings and stumbling through her life’s many aches and lucky breaks. Stripped of self-pity and categorically honest, Finley pays homage to the state that raised her, and the mother who, even in her absence, prepared her for all that was to come.
