“A Page-turner that reads like a soap opera” (Atlanta Jewish Times) Hilarious, award-winning memoir of Charlotte Laws’s outlandish adventures while searching for her birth family. She “punctuates every moment with an extraordinary sense of comedic timing and a sharp eye for twisted details, [turning] bleak family secrets and struggles into one hilarious, witty joy ride after another.” (Kirkus)
Charlotte Laws is a former Atlanta debutante who gave up riches for hardship, who gave up security to become a penniless single mom with an assault rifle pointed at her bed. Undercover Debutante is a memoir about her young adult years in Los Angeles. Her adoptive dad was the Captain Hook of her existence, always ready to take a verbal swipe at her. Laws searched for her birth parents and learned that the dark world of devil worship had touched her family tree. She worked as a maid, go-go dancer, and private eye. She was held at gunpoint by one man and almost killed by another. She faced romantic heartbreak and sexual infidelity, dating an “unindicted co-conspirator” and a clinically insane psychologist. She even had a crush on a dead guy.
There were celebrity adventures as well. She crashed star-studded award shows and private parties. She finagled past Secret Service. More than once. She interviewed the president and went on the worst date of her life with a well-known sex symbol who later died from drug abuse.
Did she ever marry? Did she meet her birth parents? Did she learn what matters in life? What’s the true story of America’s most endearing rebel?
