Review

'Brave and brutally honest' -- Vita magazine 'A rollercoaster of a book which was, quite simply, impossible to put down. Every mother and daughter should read this intelligent and heart-warming tome. It throws up questions we should all ask ourselves - and shows how the power of love can heal even the most desperate of situations. I warmly recommend this beautifully written story.' -- Amanda Cable * Daily Mail * 'The heart-stopping twists and turns make it read like a novel and I simply couldn't put it down. This book isn't just for parents of children with drug problems; this is for every parent who has ever had to deal with a child's problem.' -- Eve White

Product Description

Thin Wire is an honest and intimate account of heroin addiction told by both mother and daughter. Amber is introduced to drugs and becomes addicted without her mother's knowledge. She meets a dealer who feeds her habit. Whilst living together, they are raided by the police. Bailed to her mother's address with a £200-a-day addiction, Amber doesn't think her family will accept her back when they discover the truth. When she's charged by the police with dealing class A drugs and accepting stolen goods, she fears she'll go to prison. Trying to feed her habit alone, Amber meets a fellow addict who offers to introduce her to prostitution. The prospect terrifies her, but will her mother help her?
An unflinching story that looks at drug addiction from two sides. The book's concluding section offers two sets of personal guidelines; one for addicts, the other for parents or partners of addicts, while the in-depth, harrowing real life story vividly illustrates the difficulties of overcoming addiction. In a society where 50% of teenagers experiment with drugs, Amber is every mother's child. She could be yours.
