Product description

Product Description

AT LAST: My mother's backstory is available! Miss Perris Valley does justice to the lives that women of my mother and grandmother's era lived. Get it now for the special release price of $2.99!

OVERLAY has been called the "most powerful suicide prevention memoir ever written."

Why?

Because Marlayna was determined not to be another teenage statistic ... despite the fallen adults entrusted with her care.

In Vegas, an overlay bet is when the odds of a particular wager are higher than they should be and tend to favor the player rather than the house.

Could Marlayna develop the resilience to survive a cycle of alcoholism, abuse, and abandonment?

This true, profound story explores the characters and events populating 1970s Las Vegas as Marlayna moves from home to home, parent to parent, family to family, ultimately becoming homeless by the age of fourteen.

*2013 Winner of a Next Generation Indie Book Award*

Out of the resources of her remarkable childhood emerges a gripping inner strength that will charm and captivate readers and remain in their consciousness long after the last page of her story has been turned.

Award-winning author Marlayna Glynn delivers her breakout biography - a mesmerizing memoir epic destined to become a classic.

Get it now.
