We All Fall Down....

Thats is a picture of Nic Sheff- the author of aWe All Fall Down- a memoir of his personal journey of recovery from substance abuse. He wrote another book called Tweak-which chronicles his battle with crystal meth and heroin. His Dad- David Sheff also wrote a book- Beautiful Boy: A father's journey through his son's Addiction..

I found his book onNetGalley a while back, but without context. The book explored a genre/theme fairly new to me- addiction and so i put in my Galley.

Tales of the Ghost-hunter continue! a funny read! Suze is baby-sitting at Beach Hotel and Golf Resorts in khaki plaid shorts over the summer. Obviously Suze being Suze has to get into a ghostly tangle again!
I skipped the 2 and 3 rd book because my library didn't have it! So the last time i read this Suze was falling for Jesse. And now i am back on the series and she loves him more, ex…
