Read in December, 2008

A poignant look into the life of an alcoholic and addict who had the courage to share her story, from her descent into addiction, through her struggle during it, and finally her recovery. Her voice is clear, honest, and strong through-out the book.

Written in a tone of sharing, rather than lecturing, it does not feel like someone trying to teach you that "drugs are bad? mmmkay", rather it feels like a hidden glimpse at what is going on behind the addiction, and in that still manages the warning without the undertone of "learning a lesson".

Even during the darkest moments, there is a hint of light and hope that flows through each page.

It was hard to put down.
