This book was rather depressing. Its about an alcoholic and her journey to become sober. The author is a master at keeping you hooked in though so you keep reading. A few times I wanted to just quit, but didn't because I hoped that maybe the next chapter would be more optimistic. I finished the book, and the last quarter of it was the best of the book as she had finally become sober, but in truth I wish I had never started it. Cannot recommend it unless you're struggling with sobriety or want to read about someone who is.
