3.5 I liked the concept of the book and I liked how open each individual seemed to be about their issues with addiction. I felt as I read the book that I was a counselor listening in to the sessions they were having yet at the same time I was also into the mind of each individual learning their dee...

Before starting on this book, I was rather hesitant, as sometimes, books containing taboo subjects don't work out as well as expected.

2011 is shaping up to be the year that I try reading books that I normally wouldn't have given the time of day. I'm much more of a romance reader. I like happy endings and pairing couples up and watching them fumble their way to their happy ending and in this book, there's no real love interests for...

Reviewed in July 2011:Every now and then there is a book that pulls you in from the very first page with no intention of letting you go. "Clean" is that book for me. What's so fantastic about "Clean" is that it's real, it's raw - it doesn't shy away from anything."Clean" tells the stories of Kelly, ...
