Description

  • Atheneum Books
  • This New York Times bestselling memoir of a young man’s addiction to methamphetamine tells a raw, harrowing, and
    ultimately hopeful tale of the road from relapse to recovery and complements his father’s parallel memoir, Beautiful
    Boy.

    Nic Sheff was drunk for the first time at age eleven. In the years that followed, he would regularly smoke pot, do
    cocaine and Ecstasy, and develop addictions to crystal meth and heroin. Even so, he felt like he would always be able to
    quit and put his life together whenever he needed to. It took a violent relapse one summer in California to convince him
    otherwise. In a voice that is raw and honest, Nic spares no detail in telling us the compelling, heartbreaking, and true
    story of his relapse and the road to recovery. As we watch Nic plunge the mental and physical depths of drug addiction,
    he paints a picture for us of a person at odds with his past, with his family, with his substances, and with himself.
    It's a harrowing portrait—but not one without hope.
