In this highly personal and confessional semi-autobiographical memoir which reads more like a novel in the first person, Rehak tells us an engrossing and unique life history of being born overseas under the oppressive veil of communism, then escaping and growing up free in democratic Canada, living briefly in the conservative southern United States, and then making his home in the liberal atmosphere of Europe as an adult. He recounts his whole life right from his baby delivery (which didn't go too well) to the present-day. Writing in the same casual way that he speaks, he especially likes to focus on all the weird, amusing, and humorous happenings of everyday life, and this book will tickle your tummy with laughter, especially if you don't mind humor of a more irreverent and daring kind. You will also be deeply moved, as the author tells you about the great love of his life, the girl from Prague who forever holds the key to his heart. Includes over 70 photos.

Review:

I think this memoir should be celebrated as a unique, off-the-wall chronicle.... Rehak holds a reader's attention and makes one ponder on what he would do in the situations that Rehak came upon in his life travels... I really enjoyed this book... it reads great.

Review:

Young Adult memoirs are expected to be the next big thing in publishing, and this YA memoir makes great reading...
