One of America's most unusual celebrities tells his own outrageous story. From dishwasher to international celebrity in one afternoon . . . 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 couldn't 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 woman's cry for help, kicked in his neighbor's 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 man's 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 it's 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 doesn't 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.
