From Blackstone Audio:
What had happened to my beautiful boy? To our family? What did I do wrong? Those are the wrenching questions that haunted every moment of David Sheffs journey through his sons drug addiction. Davids story is a first: a teenagers addiction from the parents point of viewa real-time chronicle of the shocking descent into substance abuse and the gradual emergence into hope.Before meth, Sheffs son, Nic, was a varsity athlete, honor student, and award-winning journalist. After meth, he was a trembling wraith who lied, stole money from his eight-year-old brother, and lived on the streets. With poignant candor, Sheff traces the first warning signsdenial, 3 a.m. phone callsthe attempts at rehabilitation, and, at last, the way past addiction. He shows us that, whatever an addicts fate, the rest of the family must care for one another too, lest they become addicted to addiction.Beautiful Boy is a fiercely candid memoir that brings immediacy to the emotional rollercoaster of loving a child who seems beyond help.Download your book directly over Wi-Fi or cellular network and begin listening as soon as the first track downloads.
