Legend: Once sued his own parents, and won. At the age 16 ran away from home and made it all the way to ... er, wait. That's a book he wrote. Writes books about young people that may or may not be for young people, about angry kids who are tired of the world pushing them around ... er, wait. That was his own life. That first part was true, about the suing. Kind of.
