About Laugh Cry Rewind - A Memoir


Growing up in the 1970s and 80s suburban Houston, Judy Haveson is funny, sarcastic, and fiercely loyal, especially to her family, friends, and big sister, Celia. When she suffers a series of unimaginable traumatic events, her seemingly idyllic childhood comes to a halt, changing her life forever.


In Laugh Cry Rewind, Judy takes readers on her journey of self-discovery, sharing funny, touching, and heartbreaking stories from her childhood all the way to the birth of her son. Her experiences serve as a reminder that while life is not always fair, ultimately, the choice to surrender or keep on living is ours. Her message to others who have experienced loss or tragedy is this: stop waiting for the other shoe to drop. Let life go on, and good things will be waiting for you on the other side of the pain.


Here's what people are saying about Laugh Cry Rewind - A Memoir!


"Laugh Cry Rewind by Judy Haveson is a profoundly honest and deeply personal account of a woman who is the embodiment of falling down five times and getting up six. In fact, it feels like that's about how many lives Haveson has lived. The memoir depicts a turbulent coming of age that without the foundation of a solid family would have toppled a less fortunate young person. The death of her sister Celia was difficult to read because it is too heartbreaking to imagine. Haveson plows forward to navigate life's ups and downs, persisting in her search for joy and love amidst a stream of losses. There's fun too, though! She was actually on tour with Vanilla Ice when he was in a motorcycle accident and comes across authentically as the cool girl you always wanted to be your friend. She's practically Sassy Magazine material. Overall, the book presents a touching tapestry of Haveson's life, her courage, and her unwavering belief in the power of love in all its forms, reminding us of the human capacity to laugh, cry, and ultimately rebound." ★★★★★


"An easy read although the story isn’t an easy one. Losing a loved one at a young age is life changing and Judy shares the ups and downs of her life in a meaningful way! Written with humor and honesty. Helps to put all of our personal challenges in perspective. Recommend 100%!" ★★★★★
