You Don t Know Me

What do you think I look like? Skinny? Freckles? Wirerimmed glasses over brown eyes? No, I don't think so. Better look again. Deeper. It's like a kaleidoscope, isn't it? One minute I'm short, the next minute tall, one minute I'm geeky, ...

Moving, wholly involving, original, and emotionally true, You Don't Know Me is a multilayered young adult novel that presents a winning portrait of an understandably angst-ridden adolescent. John ("My father named me after a toilet!") wrestles with the certainty that no one really knows him -- not in his miserable home, and certainly not at school. It's true that no one can guess his hidden thoughts, which are hilarious, razor-sharp observations about lust, love, tubas, algebra, everything. And then there's his home: his father ran off years ago, so he's being raised by his mother, who works long hours, and by her boyfriend, whom John calls "the man who is not and never will be my father." This man is his enemy, an abusive disciplinarian who seems to want to kill John and, in a horrible final confrontation, nearly succeeds.


YOU. DON'T. KNOW. ME. You see my clothes, my hair, My job and my car. But not the broken heart, the memories, Nor under my clothes, the scar. You don't know me. You hear me speak, hear me laugh, My steps with purpose, strong and tall.

If a picture can say a thousand words, it can also leave a thousand unsaid. How well do you really know the person sitting beside you, the work colleague across the desk from you? You see their rise up the corporate ladder, their smiling children, their immaculate house, but do you really see them? Chances are, what you see is not what you get. Take me for example. I have a wonderful job, a house, a car, two amazing children, and friends and family who I know love me and are there for me no matter what. On the outside, I'm one of the luckiest people around. But my journey here would probably shock some people, even my friends. Some would be sad, and others would feel sorry for me. Yes, it's been hard; it's been painful, and sometimes I've wanted to crawl under a rock and never come out, but my journey is what's made me the person I am today. Heartache, pain, sorrow, joy, and laughter are all parts of life. We all live it; we all feel it, and hopefully we all grow and learn from it. I'm sharing my journey so others might see that, no matter how hard things may seem, life goes on. You do get through it. Keep searching for the way to happiness because life is worth it. I know—I’m living it.

A deeply personal memoir of the private Ray Charles - the man behind the legend - by his eldest son. Ray Charles is an American music legend. A multiple Grammy Award-winning composer, pianist, and singer with an inimitable vocal style and a catalog of hits including "What I Say," "Georgia on My Mind," "Unchain My Heart," "I Can't Stop Loving You," and "America the Beautiful," Ray Charles's music is loved by fans around the world. Now his eldest son, Ray Charles Robinson Jr., shares an intimate glimpse of the man behind the music, with never-before-told stories. Going beyond the fame, the concerts, and the tours, Ray Jr. opens the doors of his family home and reveals their private lives with fondness and frankness. He shares his father's grief and guilt over his little brother's death at the age of five — as well of moments of personal joy, like watching his father run his hands over the Christmas presents under their tree while singing softly to himself. He tells of how Ray overcame the challenges of being blind, even driving cars, riding a Vespa, and flying his own plane. And, in gripping detail, he reveals how as a six-year-old boy he saved his father's life one harrowing night. Ray Jr. writes honestly about the painful facts of the addiction that nearly destroyed his father's life. His father's struggles with heroin addiction, his arrests, and how he ultimately kicked the drug cold turkey are presented in unflinching detail. Ray Jr. also shares openly about how, as an adult, he fell victim to the same temptations that plagued his father. He paints a compassionate portrait of his mother, Della, whose amazing voice as a gospel singer first attracted Ray Charles. Though her husband's drug use, his womanizing, and the paternity suits leveled against him constantly threatened the stability of the Robinson home, Della exhibited incredible resilience and inner strength. Told with deep love and fearless candor, You Don't Know Me is the powerful and poignant story of the Ray Charles the public never saw — the father and husband and fascinating human being who also happened to be one of the greatest musicians of all time.
