This book was well written, telling about growing up under the difficult circumstances of one or both parents being addicted to alcohol and/or other substances and how damaging it is to families. It's told by John Lipscomb and Adrianne Lugo in a tandem narrative form sharing each of their experiences as they were growing up in different areas of the country. I'm sure many people in the country can relate to it in some way, or know many who can. I certainly can through many family members and many people I've met in life and their families also. It's certainly a huge problem and one that's difficult to fully knock out. This book had a hopeful and positive message for recovery and I would recommend it. I was given a copy of this ebook for review.

Great book, easy to read even when the subject matter was tough.  I think the authors did an amazing job and I would recommend this book to anyone that the story even remotely appeals to. People whose life struggles and successes sweep you right along with them. 5 stars-- for bravery in telling the story and for the masterfully crafted characters.

Sad but inspiring. Its hard to imagine that two sweet children(and their families) went through so much hardship and pain, for selfish reasons. 
Loved the book. Glad to see life moved on for them.
