Check out the full review at Kritters Ramblings A true story about a family's battle with addictive issues to drugs, alcohol and maybe even working.  There were many moments in this book that I wished it were a piece of fiction, because I wanted this family to take a different avenue or approach to their son's and their own issues.  My biggest issue with the story was the continuous amount of second chances that Karl and Thelma provided to their sons.  Even at the end, Karl was still giving chances when he was stating in letters to his children that he would stop providing for them.  Karl was an enabler and I am not sure he ever truly admitted it and that was hard to read and understand.  Along with that, I felt that maybe Karl and Thelma didn't provide enough attention to their sons as they were young and this could have prevented the path that the boys took.  They had all the "things" they needed, but Karl and Thelma didn't give of their time to their family.  Finally, I was not a fan that Karl and Thelma were not battling their own demons with truth and honesty.  They had issues of their own and should have taken care of themselves, just as much as they were worrying about their boys.
