Teen Volunteer Reviewer (16):
This  is a very powerful, inspirational story very inspirational because he begins with high school life, the beginning of his addition, its effects on his life, and ends with his story today. After getting the book, I could not stop reading it. In fact, I finished it in an entire day because of his compelling story. It is compelling and attention grabbing, and I would read this again. It is one of the best books I've ever read.
