Incredibly compelling tale about a mother's determination to pull her daughter out of self-destruction.

Hard to read . . . but difficult to put down. Anyone who has struggled with extremely rebellious teenagers needs to read this.

A welcome tale of a famliy who had a positive experience with a home for troubled teens.

This was an excellent account of a mother and her daughter's journey through a tumultuous life. I thoroughly enjoyed the writing although it was difficult to read at times. The writing was so descriptive; it was easy to imagine being right there watching it happen.

This book is OUT OF THIS WORLD! It is gripping. It is suspensdeul. It is a true story and is authored by the mother and daughter the story is about.

What is unusual is how WELL the story is written. It reads like fiction. It could be easily turned into a screenplay and be hollywood blockbuster.

It is a fascinating yet horrifying journey into abuse, anger, neglect, love, and hatred. A scared, hurting 15 year old girl turns to a life so distroted through the taste of drug abuse that she runs away from home.

The story follows Mia (the runaway drug addict daughter) through her run away, rehab, escape and ultimate "lock up" in a Czech Republic instution.

I couldn't put it down and recommend it highly!

Completely engrossing story of a mother's desperate struggle to help her daughter turn her life around, as well as both mother and daughter coming to grips with their own issues. The method of therapy seemed kind of "out there" at times - not something your average every day family with a similar problem can do - but it was very interesting. I kept thinking "In real life, this would never work..." but it did, and I don't think the mother's or the daughter's account was embellished in any way - it feels "true".

Interesting and good read. The book includes the mother's narration in the book and also the daughter's narration. The mother's narration is a little slow and at times dull. However, the daughter's narration makes the book into a real page turner.

Once I started reading this book, I couldn't put it down. I find myself thinking about the lessons they both learned as they went through the healing processes. Highly recommend!
