I just finished teaching this book to a class of ninth and tenth graders during summer school.

High-interest novel for reluctant young-adult readers, Reviewed in the United States on June 13, 2014. The ultimate comeback story! I did learn a lot from this book, though I thought I would learn more about how crystal meth affects the body and mind, how it clouds and mind and encourages unsafe sex, and there was not as much of that in this book. Other then all the gay sex it was good for my recovery. The basic story line runs through them all. Reviewed in the United States on December 20, 2010. Gordie's older brother is addicted to crystal meth. We’d love your help. This is a lot of rambling that makes it extremely hard to follow maybe to to his changing of story line so there anr no conflict ion with the real life people involved. Start by marking “Tweaked” as Want to Read: Error rating book. Basically if you have nothing else to read, this is a good, quick, easy book. I am moving boxes in the storeroom. Summary Sixteen-year-old Gordie Jessup is a good kid but he's living a nightmare.
There are no discussion topics on this book yet. I hope more read this YA story of a brother of a meth addict. Something went wrong. There were more multi-page descriptions of the male body and the gay club scene than there were details about the addiction, how it really started, and key turning points. I know it will be a great book.
It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness. This is his story; I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys memoirs. It’s one of those where you just have to set the book down and stare into the distance for a moment and think. I'm rather opened minded and talk off sexual encounters don't put me off even if it's the darker side of the pleasure realm but that was all this book was about. I had a close relationship with a tweaker once, and I saw him in this story even though he wasn't gay. You are there with him while he teases with getting another fix after years of sobriety.

Loved and laughed and crude thru the whole thing. Had I known it was more about his graphic sexual escapades rather than his struggle to become sober, I'm not so sure I would have read it. People don't often realize how the entire family is affected by the actions of an addict. I'm upset not more reviews are here. Some of the moments in the book where Moore talked about his addictions I sort of related too since I myself have picked up a couple of addictions since my first read of this book my senior year of high school. The story was easy to read and follow. I have just been busy with work and friends to continue reading but I plan on finishing it.

Gordie Jessup is a good kid, but he's living in a nightmare.
It may be sad to have such a problem as Crystal Meth addictions, but the way the author has written it, you just either want to do it or be very afraid of it. I don't read that many memoirs, and I hated, for instance, A Million Little Pieces even before finding out the author made half of it up. Published He grew up with both parents and …
I was really interested in hearing all the stories about the authors friends, lovers, and people along the way who influenced his life, but at times the story feels a bit rambling and off-topic. They are very powerful and I believe every parent should read them. But I guess I knew that's what I was getting into when I started it.
