Charles Ramsey gives a roller coaster account of his life before, during, and after the dramatic rescue of three kidnapped women in Cleveland .

. .Global news media declared him a hero. Well-wishers mobbed him. The Internet made him a viral sensation. It couldnt have happened to a less likely guy. Now, read how it all went down.Ramsey was in the wrong place at the right time when he answered a young womans cry for help, kicked in his neighbors locked front door, and got her the hell out of there--leading to the astonishing rescue of three young women--Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus, and Michelle Knight--who had been missing for a decade.Reporters and TV cameras flocked to a neighborhood--and a man--they otherwise would have ignored.

Ramsey was ready, with plenty to say.Bro, I knew something was wrong when a little pretty white girl ran into a black mans arms . . . Dead giveaway. It was a quote that launched a thousand Internet memes . . .In this book Ramsey walks us step-by-step through the day of the rescue and talks about living right next door to Ariel Castro--outwardly charming, secretly a monster.He tells about life before the rescue--growing up a privileged black kid in a white suburb, seeking out trouble over and over, getting kicked out of school, selling drugs, going to prison, and ultimately finding work as a dishwasher and landing by chance on gritty Seymour Avenue.And he shares what its like to become an instant celebrity, when suddenly everybody wants a piece of you.

(For example, he learned the hard way that when a big TV network flies you to New York City for an interview, that doesnt mean they also bought you a ticket back home to Cleveland!)This is a wild, eye-opening tale told with a sharp sense of humor.
