About

Overview

Drug and alcohol abuse can have a devastating effect on friendships and families. In this compelling book, young adults offer true-life tales that detail the price of addiction. Many of these first-person accounts highlight the fallout from a loved one's substance abuse issues, such as estrangement, neglect, and abuse. One writer can no longer see his beloved grandfather because of his alcoholism, while another feels betrayed by a friend who is addicted to drugs. As they struggle with feelings of anger and grief, these brave teens offer a way forward for others working to overcome these difficult life circumstances.
