Dear Read: Blackout Girl

I just finished reading a great book! Blackout Girl: Growing Up and Drying Out in America , written by Jennifer Storm, a former teenage addict, is a page turner to say the least. This autobiography tells the story of her tumultuous childhood and her fast descend into alcoholism and drug addiction. For some reason, I've always been fascinated by these types of memoirs and this one didn't let me down. She never went over the top in her detail of her past, nor did she make any excuses for the numerous mistakes she made.

This book touches on some pretty heavy subjects — rape at a very young age, her troubled and abusive relationship with her mother, death, divorce, her questioned sexual orientation, and recovery. Every time I thought she'd hit her bottom, I was sadly mistaken. Her honesty made me turn each and every page and I found myself becoming her cheerleader. Her story of survival is a great example of how someone can turn life around, no matter how bad it gets, with a lot of hard work and determination. If you're up for a straightforward, raw, and emotional read, Blackout Girl is the book for you.
