Susan Hoemke chronicles her son’s drug addition and subsequent death in a very captivating and engaging manner. Some people may assume that the parents of a teen or young adult who dies from drugs could have done more. It is beyond evident from reading this book that Susan and her husband did so very, very much to try to help him fully recover.
