I'm on the fence if to review this book - or any book - anymore. My goal has never been to offend anyone. Yet, I've come to realize that, for some reason, I'm drawn towards problematic books. I'm sure this says something awful about me as a person. Which makes me hate myself. I love this book and the message that drugs are terrible. They ruin not only your own life but others around you. I lived this book, my parents are/were drug addicts, and so are my older sister, brother, and even younger sister. I've watched drugs destroy their lives in ways they can't see because all that matters to them is getting more.
BUT, a huge but, someone else may come along, read this book, and be hurt or triggered by it, instead of seeing the message I do. That's not something I want. There are enough horrible things in this world without me adding to it by accident.
I do not want to add my voice but uplift someone else's who knows better than me. I want to remain teachable and open. I'm sorry to anyone my reviews/opinions have hurt in the past. I hope you'll forgive me. I've got a very long way to go.
