Publisher's Summary

Randall Grange has been tricked into admitting herself into a treatment center and she doesn't know why. She's not a party hound like the others in her therapy group - but then again, she knows she can't live without pills or booze.

Raised by an abusive father, a detached mother, and a loving aunt and uncle, Randall both loves and hates her life. She's awkward and a misfit. Her parents introduced her to alcohol and tranquilizers at a young age, ensuring that her teenage years would be full of bad choices, and by the time she's 23 years old, she's a full-blown drug addict, well acquainted with the miraculous power chemicals have to cure just about any problem she could possibly have - and she's in more trouble than she's ever known was possible.

no one is born broken

the narrators young, innocent, lovely voice was a constant reminder that behind every broken person making terrible decisions and trying to survive despite the environment they are born to and create is a human being struggling to make sense of it all and survive. Her voice made the difficult portions of this book easier to listen to. It is a reminder of the harm and the good we can do in peoples lives. And while we are responsible for our own actions, let us go beyond the old adage of "do no harm" but let us work to be a beacon in the lives of those who need it.
