    I am a librarian at a public library in Florida

    I am a librarian at a public library in Florida...I just spent the last 40 minutes here at work reading through Lynn's book, which I just brought from our processing unit to the reference department, so that it can be placed out for patrons. This is only the second book, in seven years, that has caught my attention like this. I am blown away by what Lynn has written. I want to thank Lynn for her willingness to share her story with the world. I will certainly be recommending this book to everyone I can.

    A 'can't put it down' for anyone, everyone.

    I loved this book. The slide into drugs was understandable, but the partying was extreme for anyone. Belying that, was Lynn's accessible storytelling, that made the shocking tale seem like it could happen to you or me. Just when I'd had enough drug tales, the book changed. Her relapse read like a Grisham novel. Her family story took the book to a higher, even more engaging human level. By the time she found her 'voice' speaking at a prison, I was cheering for this girl, as I felt I knew her. A great, multi-dimensional, fast-read book. Go Lynn!

    I Enjoyed this Book

    Rolling Away captured my attention and would not let go. I stayed up half the night reading it and then finished it the next morning. I have never suffered from addiction but with her vivid imagery and wonderful storytelling, i found myself identifying with Lynn each step of the way. Great Read.

    Great read!

    This book is great. It takes you through a journey of emotions, and at the same time teaches you what can happen when your on ecstacy.
