“Unbelievable! That’s what most people thought when Charlotte revealed the exploits and escape plans she hatched underneath the serene surface of buttoned-up Atlanta in the 70’s and 80’s. We shared our teen years inside ‘the body bag’ of Atlanta society, as she describes it in her new book, living across the street from one another on a quiet, manicured and muggy Atlanta street. Back then I knew that all this had to end up in a book one day. I’m so glad it finally did. Readers will be, too.” Chris McGinnis, columnist for SF Chronicle / SF Gate

Enjoy this rollicking ride with a most daring woman at the helm.” Ken Lawrence, novelist and former Publisher of the Association of Corporate Counsel, Government Institutes, and Bernan Press.

Laws is one of those writers who makes readers feel as if they are sitting across from her as she relates fascinating story after fascinating story. She has undoubtedly led an unusual life complete with encounters with the famous and infamous. Yet, she tells each story as if she is looking at her life from afar, not letting whatever emotional baggage she may be hauling interfere with its telling. Perhaps the ability comes from growing up as an adoptee in a life which is yours by chance rather than biology. Perhaps it comes from the many scenarios adopted children create around questions of their birth parents. Perhaps Laws is just a great storyteller who needs look no further than her own life for substance. Whatever it is, she has it. Her memoir is an entertaining and enlightening romp through her struggle to succeed. Readers will love the ride. RECOMMENDED.” US Review of Books
