I heard about this book and the movie that is coming out soon from a friend. It was marked down from $15.99 on Amazon to $5.18 so I bought it and couldn't put it down.

The boy in this book is addicted to meth, but I highly recommend it to anyone who has any kind of addiction or mental illness in the family or knows someone that has addiction or mental illness in the family.

I also recommend it to parents who are divorced or considering getting divorced, even if your kids are not doing drugs. The author talks about the effect joint custody had on their son. He also talks about the effects that having to travel to visit each parent had on their son. His son agrees it was very hard on him to have to leave the other parent for long periods of time. "I was always missing someone" he said. So, read this book, Divorcing Parents!!! ( )

David Scheff's son is an addict and David tells his experience with having to go through it as a father and the effect it has on his family. Absolutely heart breaking at times. ( )

Required reading for family members who are dealing with the co-dependency that goes hand in hand with having a loved one in active addiction. Read for school. ( )

Beautiful Boy by David Sheff follows the journey of a son battling with drug addiction through the eyes of his father. Beautiful Boy follows the growth of Nic, David's son, from birth all the way to adulthood. In this recapitulation of Nic's life, David finds the places in which he feels personally responsible for Nic's drug addiction. While carrying blame for Nic's drug addiction, David Sheff shows just how devastating drug addiction is for the addict along with their family. It highlights the challenges of sobriety and the uncertainty that follows both drug addicts and those in their lives. Beautiful Boy is a poignant piece about the very real battle of drug addiction.

Beautiful Boy is amazingly written and gut-wrenching to read. Not only does it follow the true story of Nic Sheff told by his father David, it educates the reader on the topic of drug abuse as a whole. Most chapters are dedicated to telling his own personal narrative, but others are meant to display the research the Sheff did to try to understand his son's addiction. This makes the book especially educational. Since this is a true story, it makes the novel that much more emotional to read. I would recommend this book to be mandatory for all high school students to read because it gives an interesting perspective of drug addiction, from a parents point of view. ( )

This book is for the men and women who have dedicated their lives to understanding and combating addiction at rehabs, hospitals, research centers, sober-living and half-way houses, and organizations devoted to education about drug abuse, as well as the anonymous - the brave ones who keep coming back - at countless twelve-step meetings every day and night throughout the world - to them and their families: the people who understand my family's story because they have lived and are living it, the families of the addicted - their children, brothers and sisters, friends, partners, husbands and wives, and parents like me. "It's just that you can't help them and it's all so discouraging," wrote F. Scott Fitzgerald. But the truth is, you do help them, and you help one another. You helped me. Along with them, this book is dedicated to my wife, Karen Barbour, and my children, Nic, Jasper and Daisy Sheff.
