Beautiful Boy

Beautiful Boy. By David Sheff. What ever happened to my beautiful boy? This is what David Sheff says after finding his beautiful, smart, healthy, lovely teenage boy who just started Stanford laying, drugged, beaten , filthy in a dirty back alley. Drugs are bad, just say no, yadda yadda. We hear it everyday. WAKE UP PEOPLE. These are our children, we cannot let them throw their lives away. David has a beautiful family in Northern California. He is a writer. He is involved in his childrens lives. But Nick is curious. Nick tries drugs. Nick covers it up. The drugs get stronger. Then he is addicted to Meth. It is evil. There is no going back. This is now his sad reality. This is not one persons fault. But the one thing for sure is how deeply sad this is. Noone aspires to be a drug addict. Noone dreams to of living on the streets, sick and alone after having a magnificent childhood. The pull to this drug is so strong. David is a wonderful writer and this memoir is an eyeopener for every parent, every child. You cannot be afraid to read this, you must find some lesson to learn, something to take away to help yourself, your family or a friend. No matter where you live, no matter how hard you try, noone is exempt from this tradegy they call drugs.
