A harrowing true story of choices and consequences.
As a teenager, Elle Mott descended into hopelessness. Her life as a criminal and a vagrant led her deeper into the darkness. Balancing multiple identities, the more secrets she kept, the more lies she needed. She sheds personas, rebelling against who she was and who she's becoming, but thousands of hitchhiked miles can't distance her from the crushing expectations of her great-grandmother's legacy.
Until she surrenders to herself, she will never find her way out of chaos.

What People are Saying About This
“Compulsively readable and compelling. Out of Chaos is the real deal. It is the story of one woman’s struggle to overcome family re¬jection, physical handicaps, alcoholism, abusive relationships, and homelessness. It’s a narrative few in that situation would be able to tell so eloquently. Read this book!”
“Captivating, thrilling, this book kept me turning pages late into the night…punk rock, rebellion, and the raw substance of what it means to be human in an ever-changing world. Elle Mott’s chaotic journey makes one appreciate who we have in life and how we get through both trials and victories.”
The honesty of Out of Chaos kicks like judo. It smacks of the truth and it shows you this is one brave writer, the kind that doesn’t come around very often, and when it does, you’re lucky to read it.”
“Elle Mott doesn’t sugarcoat. Instead, she gives us an intimate, unflinching look at transiency, alcoholism, and the chaos of identities constantly uprooted.”
“Out of Chaos is a work of pure courage—a story hard to tell about a life that’s been even harder to live… Elle Mott cuts herself no slack in sharing her mistakes along with her achievements…this book is a true gift to the reader.”
