Walking on Eggshells: Discovering Strength and Courage Amid Chaos by Lyssa Chapman

From one of the stars of A&E’s hit reality show Dog the Bounty Hunter comes an empowering memoir that can inspire others to break the cycle of abuse and forge happiness out of extreme adversity.

As a child, Baby Lyssa’s parents divorced and left her neglected. Things only got worse from there. Walking on Eggshells reveals Lyssa’s nightmare journey from mental and physical abuse to removal from school and confinement at home, flight from protective services, and teen pregnancy. Despite it all, and against incredible odds, Lyssa found her faith. She also found her way out of the spiral of bad decisions and even worse luck to build a healthy relationship with her mother and father and forge a rewarding, positive life with God.

An astonishing true story of one young woman’s trek from poverty and abuse to fulfillment and stardom, Walking on Eggshells is heartrending, powerful, and inspiring.

From one of the stars of A&E’s hit reality show Dog the Bounty Hunter comes an empowering memoir that can inspire others to break the cycle of abuse and forge happiness out of extreme adversity.

When most little girls play house, they might imagine two happy parents with several well-behaved children, pretty rooms, flowers in the yard, and a white picket fence near the sidewalk. Me? I just wanted parents who could stand to be in the same room with each other. . . . From my youngest days I always knew that God had something better in store for me, that He had a better life waiting for me. —from the Introduction

The ninth child of bounty hunter Duane Chapman, twenty-five-year-old Lyssa Chapman has overcome an upbringing that can only be called tragic. In her piercing memoir, she shares the details of her harrowing life and her faith journey and offers advice and solutions for readers who feel overwhelmed by their own dysfunctional circumstances.

I really enjoyed this book. I think she did an amazing job of telling her story in a very truthful way, I did feel she still has some very hard feeling towards Beth. I would certainly welcome and read another book. Want to hear more of "her" story!

I seen this book was made so I went to buy book, not at bookstore. I bought the Nook book and read it in almost 2 days! Would be nice to meet Lyssa one day!

I have found Lyssa's story extraordinary. It is inspiring, and is a bit of revelation for me. I have seen the TV series about Lyssa's father. I was stunned to learn of what life journey this young lady has been on. My view of "Dog" has been indelibly altered. I am stricken by what she had to experience growing up in this family. She never really experienced a family unit, as a child. I am astounded that she has grown into a godly, decent woman despite the negativity she grew up in. Her girls are lucky to have a mom like her, because she has so much to share about the realities of living in a drug tainted family life. Duane Chapman should be proud of this young woman who survived despite what she had to endure being his child.

But i hope Lyssa can keep her life on track. What she has gone through has made her who she is today. Makes you wonder how much farther she could have gone.

Some people take a long time to find out God will help them if you go to him! I'm glad Lyssa, you found this out at your young age so you can bring your daughters up right. Little Travis too! Pray for your mother, she needs it.
