In his explosive and compelling memoir, Lewis Kempfer chronicles his path from traumatic childhood to near-misses with religion, from failed relationships to sexual addiction. In an effort to distract himself, he moves to Hollywood and turns to hardcore crystal-meth use, walking a delicate tightrope while working his dream job inside the entertainment industry. After five years of sex and drug addiction, he calls on the God he never knew to save him—from the drugs, the dangerous sex, and from himself. Lewis Kempfer's memoir is a rapid-fire narrative full of self-deprecating humor, surprising grace, and unbelievable situations that, as his friends would say, could "only happen to Lewis." Through this powerful story of redemption and recovery, he offers hope for anyone struggling with issues of self-worth, rejection by the Christian faith, and life-shattering addiction.
