For most people, losing over $400,000 to a video lottery machine addiction would be too devastating an experience from which to recover. Like many machine addicts, it nearly cost Gisele her life, her marriage, and everything she worked so hard for. She would just be another statistic, if not for the tiny seed of a thought, an ever-present nudging that told her something was not right with the machines that were ripping her life apart.
In this remarkable memoir of courage, determination, and liberation, Gisele's intuition leads her on a fact-finding, soul-searching journey that ends her addiction and helps her to expose a government cover-up. Dismissed is an inspiring true story filled with serendipitous twists and inspiring moments of courage that will speak to anyone who wishes to overcome the seemingly unconquerable.
