Saving Beck by Courtney Cole | BOOK REVIEW


There comes a time when offering your life for your child’s doesn’t work, when you realize that it’ll never be enough.

The cold needle in his warm vein was a welcome comfort to my son at first. But then it became the monster that kept us apart.

Heroin lied, and my son believed. It took him to a world where the last year didn’t happen, to a place where his father was still alive. What Beck didn’t understand was that it couldn’t bring his father back from the dead. It couldn’t take away his pain, not permanently.

You think it can’t happen to you, that your kids, your family, will never be in this situation.
I thought that too. But you’re wrong.

Step into our world, and see for yourself.
Watch my golden boy become a slave to this raging epidemic. Watch me try and save him.

Drug addiction comes with a price.
Trust me, you’re not equipped to pay it.

I cannot remember the last time I cried because of a book. I was sharing the story with my Mom and sister over lunch and I almost cried again.

This book is exceptional. What else can I say?

This is the second novel I have read on addiction and both have not failed me. If I was still teaching at a university, I would have recommended this to every college student who stepped into my class. Hey, I would still do it now. That’s the beauty of having all these online platforms.
