Randall Grange has been tricked into admitting herself into a treatment center and she doesn’t know why. She’s not a party hound like the others in her therapy group—but then again, she knows she can’t live without pills or booze.
Raised by an abusive father, a detached mother, and a loving aunt and uncle, Randall both loves and hates her life. She’s awkward and a misfit. Her parents introduced her to alcohol and tranquilizers at a young age, ensuring that her teenage years would be full of bad choices, and by the time she’s twenty-three years old, she’s a full-blown drug addict, well acquainted with the miraculous power chemicals have to cure just about any problem she could possibly have—and she’s in more trouble than she’s ever known was possible.
Excellent read. Could not put down, finished in a day!! Raw and relatable depiction of addiction and the path to recovery through the eyes of the addict.
How to Grow an Addict
I absolutely loved this book. The style of writing was descriptive and I felt like I really understood the character and what she was feeling/going through at different stages of her life. I was so enthralled with the story, I read the book in three days. I especially enjoyed her road to recovery and the redemption that followed. Truly an inspirational story for those who want to make positive changes in their lives.
I loved this book & didn’t want it to end.
