She hit rock bottom seven years ago, joined AA and has been completely sober since. The book spans from her first drink at the age of seven to a year following her sobriety. By telling the tale of alcoholism and recovery through a seemingly light, entertaining, child-like read -- and illustrated throughout with crude stick figures in crayon.

📝Cool Hip Sober Book Synopsis : In a refreshingly clear-headed and informed approach to addiction, noted writer and radio host Bill Manville sums up what he's learned in more than forty years of research . . . twenty as a demon-driven drunk and twenty in recovery. From his popular show "Addictions and Answers," broadcast from KVML in Sonora, California, Manville has compiled a list of 88 questions and answers from, as he says, "a ton of plain and fancy drunks and dopers and their friends and families." As well, he offers valuable advice and information from his guests: noted psychiatrists, psychologists, rehab counselors, MDs, academics, and more. Here, in first-person detail, are responses to the issues faced by alcoholics, addicts, and their loved ones, such as: · How to intervene with a substance-abusing friend · How alcoholics can protect themselves from relapses · Evaluating therapies, both individual and group · How alcohol affects sex · Definitions of "social drinker," "heavy drinker," and alcoholic · The many faces of denial · Is alcoholism inherited? · How to choose the right rehab · Is there an addictive personality? · What role does spirituality play in recovery? A brave and transformational look at the treatment of chemical dependency, Cool, Hip, and Sober is a captivating, insightful and essential handbook for overcoming denial and achieving a peaceful, long-term recovery.

📝Letter Perfect Book Synopsis : David Sacks has embarked on a fun, lively, and learned excursion into the alphabet–and into cultural history–in Letter Perfect. Clearly explaining the letters as symbols of precise sounds of speech, the book begins with the earliest known alphabetic inscriptions (circa 1800 b.c.), recently discovered by archaeologists in Egypt, and traces the history of our alphabet through the ancient Phoenicians, Greeks, and Romans and up through medieval Europe to the present day. But the heart of the book is the twenty-six fact-filled “biographies” of letters A through Z, each one identifying the letter’s particular significance for modern readers, tracing its development from ancient forms, and discussing its noteworthy role in literature and other media. We learn, for example, why letter X may have a sinister and sexual aura, how B came to signify second best, why the word mother in many languages starts with M. Combining facts both odd and essential, Letter Perfect is cultural history at its most accessible and enjoyable. From the Trade Paperback edition.

đź“ťCaught in the Ack Book Synopsis : "Not exactly what I had in mind for the twilight of my mediocre career." This is Mike Quinns thinking when the hardboiled Nantucket police chief finds himself enmeshed in a mid-summer crime spree that quickly escalates from the disappearance of a vacationing child to a full blown terrorist threat against the President of the United States. Wrestling with old demons, Quinn detectives his way forward from the retrieval of the lost child to the discovery of hidden island bunkers, caches of jet fuel and heat-treated rocket parts. Despite his best efforts at maintaining mid-summer normalcy, however, the Chief soon sees his island overrun by an army of vigilantes, federal agents and quirky island rats. While Special Agent Cynthia Quinn, the Chiefs ex-wife, arrives from Washington to open as many old wounds as possible and young Agent Chloe Chigas appears to inspire and help, Quinn is ensnared in new love with bad-girl-turned-good ex-con Andie King. And displaying the deep pockets and bitter resolve to avenge his lost daughter, international businessman Joe Black adds to the chaos by bringing to the island every gun-slinging Rambo his credit card will buy.

đź“ťBlue Straggler Book Synopsis : Kathy Lynn Harris' clever debut novel is a laugh-out-loud, yet poignant, story about good friends, bad choices, quirky families and new beginnings - a Texas version of Anna Maxted's Getting Over It with the wit and humor of a Melissa Banks story.Just what is a blue straggler? A blue straggler is a star that appears to be disconnected from those stars surrounding it in its globular cluster and has an anomalous blue color and high luminosity relative to those stars that surround it.But this is not a story about astronomy.Bailey Miller is "disconnected" from the cluster of her rural south Texas family. She has never quite fit in and now in her early 30s, she finds herself struggling with inner turmoil and a series of bad choices in her life.She blames many of her personal demons, and there are many, on a self-proclaimed condition called "RODA"- short for Recurring, Obstinate Dread and Anguish. She's drinking too much (even for a member of her family), has a penchant to eat spoonful after spoonful of Cool Whip, works in a job that bores her beyond description and can't keep a relationship longer than it takes for milk to expire in her fridge.Even with the help of her two outspoken friends, Idamarie - owner of a local cafe and fourth-generation Texas woman with the big hair to prove it - and her quirky college pal Rudy, she's having a hard time.As a series of sometimes humorous, often semi-tragic, events send her reeling, Bailey packs up her Honda and heads out of Texas, in search of herself and answers to secrets from her great-grandmother's past.Chock full of memorable characters, this novel takes readers on a journey from San Antonio to a small mountain town in Colorado and back, as Bailey uncovers not only the secrets of her great-grandmother's life, but also her own, and finding love along the way.In the end, you'll ask yourself, as Bailey does: Are bad choices passed down through generations like tarnished wedding silver, frayed quilts and not-so-tasteful costume jewelry? Can we really define family and home for ourselves, or does the past always determine who we are today?
