Lovereading view...

Father and daughter tell of the consequences of her drug addiction to ‘meth’ and the effects it had on this ‘normal, middle class’ family. This is definitely one to show how this problem can effect anyone and the speed with which it can ruin lives. Luckily this story does not end in tragedy but shows how close a family came to losing everything.

Shares the story of how a middle-class girl growing up in a stable home could get lost. This book shares the events leading up to the author's first taste of drugs, and her descent into addiction with moving candour and dignity. It tries to prove that there can be life after drug addiction.
