What was the last book that made you cry?
This book... Oh my gosh, this book. Some of you already know this, but for those of you who don't: I live in a rural town in East Tennessee at the foothills of the Appalachian mountains. Like many places you hear about around here, my town has a huge problem with drug and substance abuse. People that I graduated from high school with (only 8 years ago) have died from their addictions. And if they haven't died, they're a shell of their former self. It's truly an epidemic.
Beneath a Meth Moon follows the story of Laurel as she is sucked into the world of being a meth addict. Like I said in my review, I know Laurel. There are thousands of Laurels in my town. This was book was so powerful at getting across the reality of addiction.
There were countless times I'd have to stop reading this book to cry. So many things that Laurel experiences, I've seen mirrored with friends that have fallen into the world of meth. It was heartbreaking. If I could, I'd pass this book out along the streets of my town. It's that important to me.
