Summary
  • "Reminiscent of the beloved novels by Mary Kubica and Jodi Picoult comes a chilling portrayal of a son's addiction and its harrowing effects on both him and his mother from New York Times bestselling author Courtney Cole. There comes a time when offering your life for your child's doesn't work, when you realize that it'll never be enough. The cold needle in his warm vein was a welcome comfort to my son at first. But then it became the monster that kept us apart. Heroin lied, and my son believed. It took him to a world where the last year didn't happen, to a place where his father was still alive. What Beck didn't understand was that it couldn't bring his father back from the dead. It couldn't take away his pain, not permanently. You think it can't happen to you, that your kids, your family, will never be in this situation. I thought that too. But you're wrong. Step into our world, and see for yourself. Watch my golden boy become a slave to this raging epidemic. Watch me try and save him. Drug addiction comes with a price. Trust me, you're not equipped to pay it. Don't miss this heartwrenching, evocative, yet hopeful novel--it will leave you forever changed"--
  • "Told in a dual point of view of both a mother and her drug-addled son, this novel depicts the cruelty of drug-use and loss. It promises to leave readers emotionally drained until the satisfying and hopeful ending"--
