Set to be released by Grand Central Publishing in early 2026, Scream And Break Free promises to provide an exploration of her journey towards healing and growth.

Taking the initiative to seek help, she entered rehab in 2015, recognizing her need for intervention amidst her personal turmoil.

Subsequently, she engaged in a 12-step program to confront her challenges and pursue a life of sobriety.
