American boy : the opioid crisis and the sister left behind

Image of item
Poignant and raw, American Boy is the story of a brother's fall through the eyes of a little sister. From childhood lightsaber opponent to an unrecognizable figure driving off into the night and stumbling up to federal court podiums, Megale chronicles Matthew's journey through opioid addiction with brutal truth and unimaginable love. This firsthand biography shares unique insight into a now all too familiar and life-threatening phenomenon--what worked for Matthew and what didn't, mistakes along the way that challenge families to talk without shame about their loved one's addiction, and what communities can do to change the course of this historic epidemic in front of them. Written with haunting intimacy and surprising hope, Megale's account is a must read for anyone touched by substance abuse or grief. It is the portrait of Matt--his spirit and his warmth--but the story of her, too, and her fight to return to him with both urgency and ideas of forever--
