“Andrew’s is the story of a young man descending into a deep pit of hopelessness and despair, only to be rescued under the most ironic of circumstances.”
“If your minefield is drugs, alcohol, or doing everything you can to run away from God, then Andrew Palau is your guide. Trust him; he knows the way out.”
“This book has both guts and grace. Andrew Palau guides us through his story with such raw honesty—and yet all the dark moments and detours along the way are ultimately overshadowed by one thing: the beautiful grace of God.”
