This is an amazing, honest autobiography of Nic Sheff who suffers from meth addiction. I recommend this book to anyone curious as to what meth addiction is like. Also, I recommend following this book with Beautiful Boy. It tells the same story, but it is written by Nic's father, so you get to read the story of meth addiction from a parent's perspective.

It wasn't a completely bad book, I just didn't enjoy it as much as others. I felt that Nic was a little bit on the whiny side. I am glad that he finally was able to wake up and get help and follow through with that.

Ok...So I finally finished this book. It is the true life account of a struggling addict. It says "Growing up on methamphetamines" but really this guy does everything when he relapses. Including meth. I fell in love with this book and with
him as a person. He is so very honest and at times had me laughing out loud. This book was better than scar tissue. It is worthy of respect because he spends a lot of time discussing his recovery process and living life clean and the work required. Probably my favorite all time biography of an addict.

A harrowing intense account from Nic Sheff and his hairpin journey into the heart of Meth addiction, identity, mental health issues,family and what walking into Rehab is all about. He has written another book 'All Fall Down' -as he stuggles still with Meth- The drug that refuses to release any victim in its path- leaving Doctors in Emergency rooms bracing themselves for the fallout. His Dad also wrote his view as a parent in "Beautiful Boy".

this book was amazing it followed his life of drugs with zelda and lauren and his relationship with his mom, dad daisy and the other kid and Nic goign to the SAfe passage centre was i believe the smartest idea he had made so far i was told the second book was horrible and i just got finished reading this book

Probably my favorite book of all-time. The writing flows effortlessly and is relate-able if you've ever dealt with addiction, depression, or feelings of self-doubt.

This book is a great summer read for teens it covers some tough topics and can drag on at times but over all is defiantly worth he read !!!

good--and should be read along with his father's book to see both sides of the story.

I didn't finish this book, but it was an ok book. I just could not relate at all and found it to be very boring. I heard great things about it, so that is why I checked it out.
