In this powerful and immensely engaging follow-up to his first memoir, Sheff picks up where he left off and reveals his first-person account of stints at in-patient rehabilitation facilities, devastating relapses with alcohol and marijuana, and hard-won realizations about what it means to be a young adult living with addiction.
In We All Fall Down, Nic voices a truth that many addicts understand: not every treatment works for every addict. By candidly revealing his own failures and small personal triumphs, he inspires young people to maintain hope and to remember that they are not alone in their battles.

Good, intriguing read
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I really liked this book, which sounds odd to say given that it's a tough, true story about a life of drug addiction. But years ago I stumbled across Nic's dad's book called Beautiful Boy which had me transfixed. Nic's first book Tweaked was my next pursuit and that was it... I was completely invested in The Sheff Family.
We All Fall Down is a sort-of predictable accounting of where Nic's life picks up after his last book. Despite the predictability of it though, I finished it still wanting (to know) more about the family and how things are going. I would recommend it and would definitely read another book by either Nic or his dad should one come available.
What other book might you compare We All Fall Down to and why?
In the same vein as Go Ask Alice but not as gritty.

Thanks again Nic!
I love this book, I love Nic! I just want to hug him, have coffee with him and tell him my story and how much better it gets!!! Especially when you get into your 50's. I know that sounds like a long way off for young adults, but as my beautiful mom used to say "The days go slow and the years go fast"! Before you know it your holding your grandbaby in your arms and can't believe you ever wanted to die!!!! Yet again I am filled with emotion!!! Oh and I love the music you listen too...also love mom and dad!!!
