Publisher's Summary

In his best-selling YA memoir Tweak: Growing Up on Methamphetamines, Nic Sheff shared a heartbreakingly honest account of his days as a teenage crystal meth and heroin addict. At the end of Tweak, listeners left Nic checking in to a rehab facility in Arizona. We All Fall Down is about what happened next...

In this powerful and immensely engaging follow-up to his first memoir, Sheff picks up where he left off and reveals his first-person account of stints at in-patient rehabilitation facilities, devastating relapses with alcohol and marijuana, and hard-won realizations about what it means to be a young adult living with addiction.

In We All Fall Down, Nic voices a truth that many addicts understand: not every treatment works for every addict. By candidly revealing his own failures and small personal triumphs, he inspires young people to maintain hope and to remember that they are not alone in their battles.

    "Hardcore"

    This book was not a very good performance. On top of that the subject matter was not what I expected.I have read books about addiction and recovery. This book was far to elicit and graphic for my liking . There was content that could have been left out completely and this book would have worked. I read Tweeked and it was good I felt this was a week a tempt of describing the rest of the journey.

    Story
    "Good, intriguing read"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I really liked this book, which sounds odd to say given that it's a tough, true story about a life of drug addiction. But years ago I stumbled across Nic's dad's book called Beautiful Boy which had me transfixed. Nic's first book Tweaked was my next pursuit and that was it... I was completely invested in The Sheff Family.

    We All Fall Down is a sort-of predictable accounting of where Nic's life picks up after his last book. Despite the predictability of it though, I finished it still wanting (to know) more about the family and how things are going. I would recommend it and would definitely read another book by either Nic or his dad should one come available.


    What other book might you compare We All Fall Down to and why?

    In the same vein as Go Ask Alice but not as gritty.

    "Great follow up to first book"

    Nic Sheff knows how to write a compelling story. I recently became interested in the subject of addition. I was drawn into this story and will be looking for the third installment of how he's done in years of sobriety.... or not?
