In his bestselling YA memoir Tweak: Growing Up on Methamphetamines, Nic Sheff shared a heartbreakingly honest account of his days as a teenage crystal meth and heroin addict. At the end of Tweak, readers left Nic checking in to a rehab facility in Arizona. We All Fall Down is about what happened next...
In this powerful and immensely readable follow-up to his first memoir, Sheff picks up where he left off and reveals his first-person account of stints at in-patient rehabilitation facilities, devastating relapses with alcohol and marijuana, and hard-won realizations about what it means to be a young adult living with addiction.
In We All Fall Down, Nic voices a truth that many addicts understand: not every treatment works for every addict. By candidly revealing his own failures and small personal triumphs, he inspires young people to maintain hope and to remember that they are not alone in their battles.
Praise for We All Fall Down: "Sheff is blessed with off-the-charts readability, and his sex- and profanity-laced first-person narration makes him lovable and hateable in equal measure."
"The present-tense storytelling and Sheff's authentic voice will keep readers engaged... Sheff doesn't provide simple answers--or any answers, really--but readers will respect his ability to move forward 'at my own pace.'"
