The book is worth reading because of the sections written by Mia. Her telling of her drug addiction is honest and heartbreaking. She is resilient and introspective. The sections written by Claire are the opposite of that. It felt like I was reading a memoir by someone who still doesn't get it. Claire says she knew her husband would sexually abuse her daughter, but she wrongly assumed he wouldn't do it while Mia was young. It was hard to have any sympathy for Claire after reading that. A therapist told Claire that Mia's trauma would resurface as a teenager, yet Claire was still completely surprised when that exact thing happened. I wish the book had been written by Mia alone, so it didn't get bogged down by Claire's cluelessness.

Interesting idea, it coming from the mother and daughters perspectives. In some. It's its almost unbelievable, especially the daughters experience of boot camp. A good read with a hopeful ending.

I have to disagree with lenore. Having been through a drug rehab myself. I felt the truth come out through the book. I related to Mia on this level. As a mother I empathized the Claire. Theirs is a journey through Hell.
