Jenny dealt with the stress by forgiving her mom--over and over and over again. This collection of ten true stories is based on interviews with people who, in their youth, lived with an addicted parent or sibling.

The subjects speak honestly about what it was like to grow up with a family member addicted to alcohol, drugs, food, pills, or gambling. While describing how they managed to cope, interviewees explore the full range of situations and emotions they experienced--from denial, anger, and confusion to acceptance and forgiveness. Their maturity, sensitivity, and even their sense of humor will give teens going through similar situations the important realization that there are many ways to break free from the chains of others' addictions.
