I just finished this book, and I can't recall another that made me feel like I had wrote it myself. As the mother of a teenage daughter, it was so easy to relate to and FEEL everything that the author wrote about. My daughter is now 19 years old, and while she has never quite been as hard to manage as the authors daughter, she has certainly put me up against the ropes of life. Augusta, Gone is completely amazing. A must read for any mother of a teenage daughter, troubled or not. This book will make you feel like you are, for once, not alone in your feelings about your children; good or bad. Incredibly relatable, intense, wonderful book!!
The book was very interesting. It gave a good first person account of the struggles a loving, concerned mother was having in trying to help her mis-guided teen. I found it a very compelling read and a quick one. It tied up a little too prettily at the end, but overall a very good book.
This book really made me think about myself as a teen and everything I put my mother through. After reading this I called my mother to apologize for being such a nightmare. It was really different reading something from a mother's point of view. Mostly really sad. I liked this book however it was not one of my favorite's. I think it's a great read though and do recommended it to people who put there mother's through a lot. You don't really think about it until you read another's story.
