Surrounded by alcoholism her entire childhood, Amber never stood a chance. But for a long time she was an overachiever and a functional alcoholic. None of her relatives suspected it because in her family, the men were the alcoholics, not the women. After her dad died of the disease, she spiralled out of control. She hit rock bottom seven years ago, joined AA and has been completely sober since. This is her story from her first drink aged seven to her sobriety. By telling it through a seemingly entertaining, child-like read, illustrated throughout with crude stick figures in crayon, it draws the reader into Amber's hard-fought journey with wit and poignancy.
