Stacey Dash didn't have the ideal American childhood. Growing up in the South Bronx, her friends were the hustlers, hookers, and gang members who struggled in the face of futility, who sold drugs instead of living on food stamps, who settled matters with fists, knives, and guns because it seemed their only option, who stood tall against broken dreams. Dash's rough upbringing shaped the rest of her life - her relationships, her politics, even her faith. She has seen how conservative and liberal policies play out in the real world, and her experiences have made her the proud conservative she is today.
That's why Stacey Dash, a Fox News contributor and Hollywood actress best known for starring in the 1995 classic Clueless, is now telling her story. Amid all the heated racial rhetoric and the divisive language that flows from TV, the Internet, self-appointed black spokespeople, and even President Obama, Dash feels compelled to speak out and say something true about race, politics, and America.

The book was well read by the author without sounding drab! Stacey's story caught my attention and had to listen to it in two nights! Glad to see she met a mentor in Nathan to assist her, and now living a much better life.
Stacey. She did not hold back!
Made my heart go out to her. I wish I knew her and my family and I could have helped her in any way possible! Shelter, food, baby sitting, etc....
Great book that should be turned into a major motion picture!
If you have an interest in American politics, American culture, or race relations in America, this book is for you. I appreciate the author's ability to use simple common sense as she navigates through life for which she received precious little guidance. As a black woman with her background, she has a powerfully redemptive message for such a time as this. Frankly, I could have done without some of the detail of her relationships and yet perhaps the rawness of the story results in a tremendous impact. An incredibly thought provoking account that resonates with me even though our lives are radically different.
Stacy Dash speaks from the heart and delivers a stunning performance of the real world, and real people's issues.
The truthful facts about the safety and security of conservative values and the conservative way of life were wonderfully weaved into Ms. Dash's biography, which aptly depicts the consequences experienced by many Black females in America due to the inability to discover and accept the truth of how damaging a disgusting disregard for living a God-centered life can be, a truth that is buried in liberalist rhetoric that is accepted and promoted by most mainstream "churches" and continues to destroy the lives of those who listen to it. Thank you.
Stacey Dash I knew was a talented writer from reading her blog. I would jokingly "harass" her to write a book on Twitter. I knew she would have a fascinating story to tell... But this went beyond my expectations...
so many examples of unbelievable circumstance I want to go over cable incredible orange tabby successful in life and finally in love.
Listening on the go!
Stacey Dash has had to overcome many of her heart ships in life. She has come a long way to become the amazing woman she is today.
This is an absolutely amazing story about a very respectable proud American, that refuses to go along with the norm! It makes me feel like my life has been easy compared to all that she has been through, I wish you well Stacy Dash
