"Spares no details." Starred Publishers Weekly Review"An incredible read." Richard Donner, Director"People always ask me about life after childhood stardom. What would I say to parents of children in the industry? My only advice, honestly, is to get these kids out of Hollywood and let them lead normal lives." Corey FeldmanA deeply personal and revealing Hollywood-survival story.Lovable child star by age ten, international teen idol by fifteen, and to this day a perennial pop-culture staple, Corey Feldman has not only spent the entirety of his life in the spotlight, he's become just as famous for his off-screen exploits as for his roles in such classic films as Gremlins, The Goonies, and Stand by Me. He's been linked to a slew of Hollywood starlets (including Drew Barrymore, Vanessa Marcil, and adult entertainer Ginger Lynn), shared a highly publicized friendship with Michael Jackson, and with his frequent costar Corey Haim enjoyed immeasurable success as one half of the wildly popular duo "The Two Coreys," spawning seven films, a 1-900 number, and "Coreymania" in the process. What child of the eighties didn't have a Corey Feldman poster hanging in her bedroom, or a pile of Tiger Beats stashed in his closet?Now, in this brave and moving memoir, Corey is revealing the truth about what his life was like behind the scenes: His is a past that included physical, drug, and sexual abuse, a dysfunctional family from which he was emancipated at age fifteen, three high-profile arrests for drug possession, a nine-month stint in rehab, and a long, slow crawl back to the top of the box office.While Corey has managed to overcome the traps that ensnared so many other entertainers of his generationhe's still acting, is a touring musician, and is a proud father to his son, Zenmany of those closest to him haven't been so lucky. In the span of one year, he mourned the passing of seven friends and family members, including Corey Haim and Michael Jackson. In the wake of those tragedies, he's spoken publicly about the dark side of fame, lobbied for legislation affording greater protections for children in the entertainment industry, and lifted the lid off of what he calls Hollywood's biggest secret.Coreyography is his surprising account of survival and redemption.

I always loved The Goonies and Lost boys you always looked so happy together when in actual fact you were all drug fuelled disasters!
Corey was very honest in this book about everything I love the fact that he admits to his own mistakes and relapse.
He lifted the lid of the dark side of Hollywood and continues to stay off the drugs and raise his son, he never shy's away from his mistakes which I think is very responsible. #readingmyownbooks

kaysworld1 I do think the 2 Corey's being together was a disastrous thing and should never have been reunited at all! 1mo
kaysworld1 They were just kids! Its is truly devastating what goes on we know nothing about. 1mo

We are having a very chilled night together.
Warm house, smooth jazz playing, cat gently snoring and reading the tagged book it's more interesting the second time round. #catsoflitsy #readingpartner #itsahardlife #reading #readingmyownbooks #autobiography #books #cats #cuteness 📚🐈🐱📚🎶🎺🎻

I've been hearing bits and pieces of Corey's story for years, but it seems that he is just now being taken seriously in the midst of all of these breaking sex scandals in Hollywood. This is on sale today for $2.99 and I bought it without thinking too hard about it, because I'm eager to hear his side of the story. #kindle #sale #biography

new2kindle Always popping up in those 80s classics movies i love so much but such a difficult upbringing & real struggles post fame. Should be an interesting read I'm definitely going to get it if it's in the UK kindle sale 2y
JenlovesJT47 @new2kindle yes! I admit I'm not overly familiar with all of his work, he was at his peak when I was still a little kid. But if you watch interviews with him he looks like such a tortured soul. And he has been brave enough to speak out against the Hollywood debauchery he was exposed to as a child, and has been doing so for years. It's a shame he is just now being taken seriously. I hope you can get it on sale where you are! (edited) 2y
new2kindle @JenlovesJT47 I've been after the kindle book version for a while as I don't have audible but it's still full price at the moment. I might treat myself though. On a side note I've a feeling this book could be reissued & updated in the near future now he's bravely taking on the dark side of Hollywood & hopefully it will help him banish some of his demons 2y

JenlovesJT47 @new2kindle that's too bad it's not on sale on your end, I wish my kindle would allow me to let you borrow it! (Their rules on that are so funky) An update in the future sounds highly probable. I'm hoping this will help him have some sort of closure (if there is such a thing under these circumstances!). Let me know your thoughts on the book whenever you do get around to reading it! 2y
new2kindle @JenlovesJT47 that's very kind but yes sadly no digital lending...yet? You never know what Amazon may come up with in the future ☺. I'll be sure to let you & the community know my thoughts if/when I start it. hope you enjoy your purchase 👍 2y
JenlovesJT47 @new2kindle great! Amazon does let you loan kindle titles to your friends, but they have a million rules about it so most of the time it doesn't work out. 😭Maybe they'll fix it someday. Happy reading! 🤗 2y

Growing up with the two Corey's & then reading this book, made me sad for all they suffered.
