Last month I read this great book, Memoirs Aren’t Fairytales: A Story of Addiction
by Marni Mann. It chronicles a girl’s path towards heroin and the grip it takes on her life. It was truly intriguing. Working in the foster care system, I tend to just focus on the effects drug abuse has on the children. It was really interesting to see the other side…how it starts, how the addict absolutely loses control. It was very powerful and enlightening.
Also available on Nook
Update: I just found out there is a sequel coming soon…Scars from a Memoir!
