bookshelves: 16-18, memoir, drugs-and-alcohol
Recommended for: memoir lovers
Read in June, 2008

I love the way that Nic Sheff portrays himself in the most unflattering way possible. And that you can (somehow) continue to root for him. I'd like to read Beautiful Boy now because I had NO sympathy for David Sheff by the time I got to the end of the book.
Maybe it's because I know too many people who are like Nic, it was so accurate at times I was picturing my friend. (who luckily got out of it too)
The book does get a little long and repetitive at times, but the end is so satisfying, and I think teens will really appreciate its rawness.
