Overview

YA-Photographs, narratives, and poetry describe the physical, psychological, and emotional pain of alcohol, drugs, and child abuse in a way that no strictly factual book could. The authors spent five years interviewing and photographing addicted mothers: the effects of dependency on their bodies, their children, and their families. This source goes beyond blaming the women and takes a look at generational and societal problems. This is a collection of poignant, raw, and searing memories that are agonizing to read.-Pat Royal, Crossland High School, Camp Springs, MD
