Really fun read! I enjoyed it and the book is very informational. I'm a Dad of an addict, so it's helpful to read stories that make sense.

What I like about this book is that it's simple, but isn't overly simplistic. The author tells the story of five people trying to find recovery through great artwork and a compelling story. I'm in recovery myself, but I gave the book to my mom and she said that it really helped her understand what real recovery is about. I'd recommend this book to anyone seeking to find a new life for themselves without alcohol or drugs!

Anyone can become addicted to a substance; alcohol, drugs, spending money, eating, sex. This book tells the story of fictionalized characters; women, men, black, asian, white to show how lives are destroyed by addiction regardless of race, gender or sexual preference. This is a graphic non-literal parallel of the message in the Big Book by Bill W. and Dr. Bob, creators of the 12 step method. Yes, graphic novel means it is a comic book but not one of super heroes or funny people. The author chose this method to illustrate the 12 steps in order to reach a broader audience. Entertaining and highly instructive it is a quick read but as my wife said after reading it "now I know what it must be like to be an Addict!
