David Sheff s story is a first: a teenager s addiction from the parent s point of view, a real-time chronicle of the shocking descent into substance abuse and the gradual emergence into hope.

Before meth, Sheff s son, Nic, was a varsity athlete, honor student, and award-winning journalist. After meth, he was a trembling wraith who stole money from his eight-year-old brother and lived on the streets. With haunting candor, Sheff traces the first warning signs, the attempts at rehabilitation, and, at last, the way past addiction. He shows us that, whatever an addict s fate, the rest of the family must care for one another, too, lest they become addicted to addiction.

This book goes hand in hand with "Tweak". This book is narrated by the drug addict's father and Tweak is narrated by the teenaged drug addict. I recommend reading this book before Tweak. It is amazing how different the perspectives are and what the true reality is compared to what the father believes the boy is going through.
