EXCERPT:


“Do you want to talk about it?” I hesitantly ask, running my own finger along the steering wheel.

“I’m not sure. It’s just all so crazy in my head. Nothing makes sense. Nothing is going as I’ve planned.”

“Sometimes the best things that happen are the ones you least expect,” I say, like some damn philosophy professor.


She turns to me with a serious face. “Adam, what if Shane doesn’t get clean? What if he can’t do it?” A tear clings to her lashes before falling from her eye and trailing down her cheek.


REVIEW

What happens when you are an enabler even to the dead..... Yes this books get that deep. I was drawn to it because although the person I personally enables is not into any substance I still fall into that category.

This book explains the struggle of doing for the ones you love with no questions ask and how one person misfortune can bond two families together for a lifetime. Although I wanted a little more depth in Cassi life and reasons the explanation in the family therapy session quenched a little thirst. I loved Adam not just for his protective instinct but for the fact that the burden he cared was more than the rest and he still stayed focused on what mattered the most.

Michelle touched on a hard topic and delivered it with finesse





AUTHOR BIO:

Michelle moved
around the Midwest most of her life, transferring from school to school before
settling down in the outskirts of Chicago ten years ago, where she now resides
with her husband and two kids.  She
developed a love of reading at a young age, which helped lay the foundation for
her passion to write.   With the
encouragement of her family, she finally sat down and wrote one of the many
stories that have been floating around in her head. When she isn’t reading or
writing, she can be found playing with her kids, talking to her mom on the
phone, or hanging out with her family and friends.  But after chasing around twin preschoolers
all day, she always cherishes her relaxation time after putting the kids to
bed.
