If I Knew Then...by Amy Fisher, Robbie Woliver
Here, in this intensely personal book,
The public remembers one Amy Fisher: the sixteen-year-old "Long Island Lolita" who shot the wife of her lover. But for Amy herself, life hasn't stood still. A decade and a half later, she has grown into a reflective, confident, and happy 30-year-old woman, an award-winning newspaper columnist, and a devoted wife and mother.
Here, in this intensely personal book, she tells her story-clearing up the many misconceptions about who she was, what she did, and who she is now. Amy:
- Talks in detail about her childhood, her relationship with Joey Buttafuoco, the shooting, life in prison, parole, and how she has pieced her life back together again;
- Provides never-before-told details about her time in prison;
- Takes full responsibility for the impulsive, unthinkable crime of her youth;
- Serves as a source of inspiration, proving that rehabilitation and redemption are achievable;
- Delivers advice to parents and teens from her unique perspective-including warning signs and action plans-on how to keep out of danger and avoid potentially deadly choices.
- Shares her vision on gun control and minors and ending domestic violence and the abuse of women in prison.
