You'd Be Home Now by Kathleen Glasgow

You'd Be Home Now by Kathleen Glasgow
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

What are you going to do with your one wild and precious life?

This book was much more emotional and real than I had expected. I laughed…I cried. Seriously. I don't remember the last time I cried with a book.

This was the story of Emory, but also of her brother Joey. Their lives are so intertwined that Emory can't seem to separate them. As she watches him go down the road of addiction and everything that comes with that, as his life unravels and everything it touches, all she wants is to be able to fix him, fix herself, and be seen. Maddie, her older sister is the perfect one, Joey is the bad one, and Emory is the good one, the invisible one.

What I took away from this story is that addiction is hard on everyone, not just the one addicted. Life is hard. We mess up. Sometimes a lot. But we have to pick ourselves back up and try again. Because in the end, it doesn't matter that we messed up, but that we didn't give up.

I received a copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
