    Description

    Zach is 18. He is bright and articulate. He's also an alcoholic and in rehab instead of high school, but he doesn't remember how he got there. He's not sure he wants to remember. Something bad must have happened. Something really, really bad. Remembering sucks and being alive—well, what's up with that?

    ©2009 Benjamin Alire Sáenz (P)2011 Audible, Inc.

    Commentaires

    "Sáenz' poetic narrative will captivate readers from the first sentence to the last paragraph of this beautifully written novel.... It is also a celebration of life and a song of hope in celebration of family and friendship, one that will resonate loud and long with teens." ( Kirkus Reviews)
    "There is never a question of either Sáenz’s own extraordinary capacity for caring and compassion or the authenticity of the experiences he records in this heartfelt account of healing and hope." ( Booklist)
    "Offering insight into [an adolescent's] addiction, dysfunction and mental illness, particularly in the wake of traumatic events, Sáenz's artful rendition of the healing process will not soon be forgotten." ( Publishers Weekly)

    A wonderful, wonderful book

    A real tear jerker, but without any cloying sentimentality. We travel with Zac on his road from a traumatic past and to sobriety and a hopeful future. The story, told in the first person is excellently written; a real triumph for the author, Benjamin Alire Saenz. Thank god for writers like yourself.

    MacLeod Andrews really stuns me out! 😍

    Any additional comments?

    Mr. Benjamin Alire Saenz wrote ✨ HAPPINESS✨ on my heart when he created this lovely, dark, heartbreaking, life altering, never give up on yourself work of art!

    The inside look into those who suffer so many different types of depressions either biologically or from a traumatic event that took place in their life is not only heartbreaking, but scary. And how lucky are we to live in a country where asking for help shows the true strength of someone who wants to better themselves physically and mentally?

    Raphael was my hero.

    Adam, my Angel.

    And Zack, my quiet heart.

    Best moment: Meeting Raphael again. 💖

    Amazing! I love this book.

    I am a person who doesn’t like reading I find it “boring”, and that’s just me but there are some books out there that really peak my interest, and this is one of them. I love the detail and how relatable this book is. I would recommend this book to everyone and anyone who needs a book. This was an amazing listen.

    Best book I've listened to in years!

    If you personally have lived with a person dealing with addiction or death then this book is for you. I laughed and cried through the entire book. I'm proud to say that Mr Benjamin Alire Saenz is from my neck of the woods, El Paso, TX! And MacLeod Andwers...still the best narrator in my book!

    Singing to the Monster

    A wonderful young adult that is terrific for older readers also. It had me from the line where the main character says " I have sad written on my heart". It deals with tough issues in such a positive way.

    *Ugly Cry*

    This book really tore me apart. Zach is an incredibly sympathetic character whose story is tough to digest but nonetheless impossible to put down. Throughout most of the book, I was either on the verge of tears or in tears. Even thinking about it, a couple of months after having listened, I still get emotional.

    Great performance as well.

    A book you’ll never forget

    I read this book 10 years ago when it was first published. It has stuck with me all this time I could not remember the name but I could remember a quote. “Some people have a dog.... I have a therapist”, I typed everything I could remember into google and found this book to be exactly as captivating as I did when I was 13. A heart wrenching story however it is filled with recovery, happiness, truth, and hope. Listen to it, you will not regret it!
