Shocking and touching,
This review is from: Mum, Can You Lend Me Twenty Quid?: What drugs did to my family (Paperback)
Having watched my mum battle with her sister's heroin addicition throughout my childhood but then giving up and accepting her choices, this book really helped me to understand what she has been through. Lots of books talk from the perspective of the drug user and having read from both angles it seems that the family go through so much more than the addicts themselves. This book made me cry, it was very sad and upsetting and the writer doesn't hold back any of the grim realities of heroin addition.
A compelling read.
