Making mistakes because you do not know any better is one thing, but to make them over and over is another. If this sounds familiar, you may require a needed course correction. If you are still wandering in the wilderness and cannot find your way out of the thick fog of Mistake City, maybe it is time to learn from the mistakes of others. It just may be time to take advantage of the wisdom from those who have "been there and done that".

Regret... remorse... anguish. Rose White always believed that one day she would live happily ever after with the man of her dreams, in a house full of their beautiful children. When she finally fell head over heels in love, she thought that those dreams had come true. But when she packed up her belongings and left her parents’ home at eighteen years of age, she soon realized that the man she was running off with wasn’t the one she knew. After their wedding and the birth of their baby, their relationship plummeted into an abyss of lies, abuse, affairs, and manipulation. She desperately wanted to reconnect with her estranged family, but her husband wouldn’t hear of it. Left with no other choice but to sneak out of the house with the baby, she risked what would only be imminent: verbal and physical violence at his hands. Rose holds nothing back as she takes readers on her journey, reminding them that regardless of their circumstances, they’re never alone. She tells it like it is—the good and the bad, the pleasure and the pain—and how she survived.

This book is a collection of poetry written throughout the journey of a youth caught up in the dark side that exists in our society. It is written from various times of her life and reflects each perspective. The addict, the stripper, the victim of domestic violence, these are just some of the views she writes from. During times when no one would listen to her spoken words or outcries, she wrote to cope, and this book was born. There are two parts to this book though. It is not all darkness. Somehow, miraculously, this young woman escaped the darkness and found the light. In the final section she reflects on lessons learned and coping mechanisms, as well as her hopes for a better society and a better world.

The acclaimed author explores his path from closeted child to out-and-proud adult in this deeply personal collection of fourteen linked essays. “[A] moving debut. . . . Thanks to Van Meter’s honesty, essays on his own childhood, identity, and love have a profoundly universal appeal.” —Publishers Weekly The middle American coming-of-age has found new life in Ryan Van Meter’s coming-out, made as strange as it is familiar by acknowledging the role played by gender and sexuality. In fourteen linked essays, If You Knew Then What I Know Now reinvents the memoir with all-encompassing empathy—for bully and bullied alike. This deft collection maps the unremarkable yet savage landscapes of childhood with compassion and precision, allowing awkwardness its own beauty. This is essay as an argument for the intimate—not the sensational—and an embrace of all the skinned knees in our stumble toward adulthood. “As Van Meter drifts elliptically between his childhood as a closeted young boy and his life now as an openly gay man, he draws the reader inexorably to this book, and its compelling weight.” —Cleveland Plain Dealer “To read a book this observant, this fiercely honest, and this effortlessly beautiful is to feel the very pulse of contemporary American essays.” —John D’Agata, author of The Lifespan of a Fact “These essays are insistently honest, darkened by melancholy and yearning, yet polished by prose so lithe, so elegant that Van Meter’s human presence brightens every line.” —Lia Purpura, author of It Shouldn’t Have Been Beautiful
