Editorial Reviews

Review

"Wounds of the Father is what young adult audiences have been waiting for: their generation's Go Ask Alice. Her brutal honesty and graphic descriptions of addiction lets readers know that she's been there, done that...She lived to tell her tale proving that even the gravest circumstances can be overcome, and providing an inspiration for troubled teens." --Arlene Garcia, Broward County Library

"Elizabeth Garrison's spellbinding tale of personal transformation is an essential read for anyone who has ever risked a journey to the raw mirror of self and the world. Every high school and counseling center should have this book." --Utne Magazine

"Wounds of the Father is a disturbing, yet hopeful memoir of a 12-year-old girl's journey into addiction and the battle she waged. If you think teen addiction is limited to youth from single-parent homes in urban settings, then you should read this book to broaden your perspective. A must-read for anyone who is courageous enough to hear the truth about small-town America that is rarely told." --Hamline University
