really liked it

Recovery Road is an honest, painful look at the hard road of drug rehab. 16 year old Maddie is reluctantly facing her drug, alcohol and anger issues in a halfway house. The book follows her attempts at friendship and even romance before she is released and must decide whether to continue high school or get her GED. Through both her and her friends we see what it takes to remain sober and what support systems need to be in place for success. I was surprised that the honest look at the consequences of drugs did not extend to unprotected sex; no negative consequences here of pregnancy or STDs. Readers will root for Maddie to make it and feel her pain at every roadblock along the way.
