Amazing Book

This book does have a lot of drugs and other inappropriate things but what the main review author forgot to mention was the positive moralities this book concludes. Nic overcomes his drug addiction many times and fails many times. Towards the end of the book he is counseled and able to feel emotions again; able to realize his faults. No one around him trusts him anymore, but they still love him. It's a beautiful story about how we slowly builds his life together even though he has been through the worse situations a person could imagine.
