    WARNINGS: About half way through the book and all the way to the end, it was all I could do not to cry.

    First let me just say, I never ever expected this book to turn out the way it did. Cynnie is just a girl with a drunk for a mom and she's having to grow up faster than she should. She has to take care of her little brother Bill, too. I definitely connected with Cynnie. My dad is almost exactly like her mom. Even though, I didn't do some of the things Cynnie did, sometimes it was like I was reading about my own life. It was powerful. And that makes this book have a special place in my heart.

    Cynnie doesn't want to be like her mom, but falls into her worst nightmare and starts drinking too. With Cynnie going through the same things as her mom, she can sees a different side of things. Even though, it doesn't always make things any better, she gets an insight into her mom's struggles.

    This book seemed a little too real for me. Like I said, I was trying not to cry through the last half of the book! Every time something with my dad happens, I always think about this book. I remind myself that what he is struggling with isn't as black and white as I'd like it to be and it helps me help him.

    Addict's Last Words: The Year of My Miraculous Reappearance is a simple yet intense read.

    To Buy or To Borrow: This book made my favorites list so I'm happy with it sitting proudly on my shelf.

    The first book in a long time that made me stay up all night to finish it. Leaving the book felt like abandoning the character in a moment of need, and the author makes you care for the character so much, it felt wrong to put her down until there was some closure. Not normally my type of book unless the author hits it just right... And she did.

    Miraculous is a story about a young girl climbing out of a hellhole and trying to reclaim her family and identity. Cynthia’s rapid descent into alcoholism is illustrated with telling details, such as her wondering what it was she used to do for fun before she began drinking, the physical pain of alcohol withdrawal, and the juxtaposed feelings of elation some people get with their first drunk. Cynthia’s voice is engaging and honest and sometimes sounds mature, like that of other CofAs who have had the parent/child roles reversed. Her journey through AA, learning the steps and going through them, making amends to people wronged while drinking, etc. is so well done – AA is demystified and Hyde refrains from cliche and stereotype throughout, really doing the organization justice as a lifeline.

    I don't like crying. Hate it, actually. So things that make me cry don't usually make it very high on my 'things that I like' list. But every now and then, something comes up that is so amazing, it's worth the tears. This book... is one of those things.

    My mom isn't an alcoholic, and I've always known that somebody loves me. But Cynthia's story of her fall - and the recovery from it - really touched me. There are times when things get out of proportion, and times when you take things for granted. But there will always be someone who can put you back on track, someone who can listen till you've said every hurtful thing and then make you realize how stupid you're being. You don't have to be brave, or smart, or pretty to be Strong. You just have to have Love.

    I'm still not entirely sure I how I feel about this book. It was def a quick read, I read it in almost one sitting, and I enjoyed the subject material. I think it is almost an important book for teens to read. but I hated the writers style. it felt too over simplified. like the author was trying to dumb down the language of a teenager. You can have a narrative sound like a teen without using simple sentences.

  6. says:

    I wasn't sure what to expect, but I was encouraged by this book of struggle and hope. Cynthia is 13 and rearing herself along with her special needs little brother because her mother is an alcoholic. What do you do, though, when your entire reason for getting up is taken away? Catherine Ryan Hyde, the author, does a wonderful job of keeping Cynthia's voice true to a teenaged girl while also proving that struggle & strength are inside all of us.

    I would think every mother wants to hold this young teen in her arms and tell her everything is going to alright, but it isn't for Cynnie. She is more of a mother to her handicapped younger brother than her drunkard mother. When he is taken away by her grandparents she goes off the deep end until she finds the strength to get her brother back. One of those books you are so glad you read.

    I wound up liking this book a lot more than I thought I would when I first started it. Believable main character and not preachy or didactic at all. I would totally recommend it to a teen who had friends or family members in AA or, of course, to a teen considering entering the program him- or herself.

    I thought this was a great book. I love a book that when I start reading it I can't put it down. I didn't expect the ending to turn out like it did. ( one part anyways) but, surprises are nice sometimes.

  10. says:

    This is a sympathetic but realistic look at a child living with an alcoholic parent. You can't help rooting for Cynnie even while you watch her go down a self-defeating rat hole, and you really cheer when she starts crawling back out. The story seemed very realistic. Excellent book.
