From its first caustic, blackly hilarious quote to its unbelievable ending, Freak examines a roller coaster ride of a life and never lets up. It tells the true story of Rebecca O’Donnell, an atypical hero who found joy and laughter in the darkest of circumstances. Unlike so many spunky survivors of damaged pasts, Rebecca belonged to those far more common gray areas of depression and insecurity, hidden behind a mask she showed the world.

For decades, all her decisions were colored by that grayness, that insecurity; she had put herself into a pit and had to discover a way to crawl out of it. With laughter, self-recognition, and a drop of shaky courage, Rebecca shares exactly how she did that, discovering in the process a gift that she never expected—the ability to help others build their own ladder out of hell. Freak offers hope to anyone who has ever heard that voice of self-hatred—the gremlin of insecurity whispering that we can’t, we shouldn’t, and we don’t deserve.

It is the denial of that gremlin and the shattering of its lie that make this memoir resonate with other victims of incest, substance abuse, and depression.

Preview coming soon.
Rebecca O’Donnell lives in New York. She has been a professional artist for thirty years. She has two children, both grown; her daughter is an artist and her son is a mathematician. This is her second book.
