    (7)

    Amy Caruso was a junior in the nursing program at Boston College and seemed to have everything going for her - brains, beauty, athleticism, career goals, a loving family, and many wonderful friends. But in November 2009, she admitted she was a heroin addict and voluntarily entered treatment. Five weeks later she died from an overdose at the treatment facility on the day after Christmas, weeks shy of her twenty-first birthday.

    Story

    It was hard for me to get though this book due to the narrator's lisp, and monotone/emotionless voice. Although I do understand the author's reason for reading it. It ruined the book for me.
    As far as the story goes, I felt as though, through the whole book she placed blame on her daughter's doctors, friends, and boyfriends for her daughters issues. She does admit to being manipulated and lied to by her daughter. She praises her daughter throughout the whole book, repeatedly telling the reader what a wonderful person she was.
    This was a waste of money for me. Would have rather read it on my own. Hmmm maybe not, just not enough juice in the story.
