Today is a *Special Showcase* of two Wonderful women, who are both Authors, both STRONG & Outspoken about Addiction and Recovery! They are both good friends to me, and I have been blessed to have met them through my Recovery and Life’s Journey.
First , Meet Author, LORELIE ROZZANO, who’s book, *Jagged Little Edges* is currently out at: http://www.amazon.com/Jagged-Little-Edges-Lorelie-Rozzano/dp/1937265781/
This is a Fantastic read! Here is just a few awesome reviews that says this book is well worth a READ:
Lorelie pens “Jagged Little Edges” in her own unique writing style, taking
personal experiences and putting them to words. Filled with emotion and
relate-ability, the story line revolves around a young woman’s addiction and
takes place over several years. A must read for all parents and older
This review is based on a complimentary copy from the author which
was provided for an honest review.
This would be the first book I have read based on addiction. Everyone hears a lot of things about drugs and such, but no one every really knows the story behind it. Jagged Little Edges tells the story of not only the physical pain, but the mental torment that our main character Lyndsey goes through.
Though Lyndsey is the main character, I don’t believe the point of the book was to tell HER story. I think it was meant to tell the story of every drug addict. I personally enjoy books that allow you to see the “other side” of things, and I believed this book accomplished this. Not only is their subject matter on drugs/addiction, the novel highlights topics such as abusive relationships, family problems, pregnancies, and other things. So basically there is something in there for everyone.
Within the first few pages, I was able to fall into Lyndsey’s story. The novel takes place over a ten-year period, and I thought it was amazing to see how she changed, and in some ways, how she didn’t. We can watch the emotional scares that addiction and social problems has inflicted upon her. What Lorelie was able to accomplish with Jagged Little Edges is incredible.
Sometimes I wished the book would’ve included more dialogue, though I understand that the book was more of a mental thing. The format will take some getting used to, but I don’t think it’ll be too hard to catch the gist of.
Overall, I choose to keep Jagged Little Edges on my bookshelf.
