Waiting on Wednesday: We All Fall Down: Living with Addiction by Nic Sheff
"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine to spotlight an upcoming release that we're excited about. This week I'm waiting on We All Fall Down: Living with Addiction by Nic Sheff.
There are so many made up accounts of fights with addiction for YA readers, and it's not that some of them aren't valuable, but some of them are kind of ridiculous and try the "scared straight" tactic which so often doesn't work at all and just feels fake. This is different. It's a look at a real person who fought addiction, failed, and fought again.
We All Fall Down: Living with Addiction will be coming from Little, Brown Books for Young Readers on April 5, 2011.
