    Lush (Enriched EBK)

    by Natasha Friend

    Sam has a secret she can't tell anyone, not even her best friend. Her father, a successful architect, gets so drunk and enraged at night that she doesn't dare have anyone over. And her mother would rather talk about yoga and meditation than alcoholism.

    Desperate and alone, Sam starts leaving anonymous notes tucked into a book in the library, hoping for some acknowledgment of what she's going through. As things escalate at home, however, her very private life threatens to become embarrassingly public.

    Told with humor and hope, this invaluable book includes a variety of resources for kids to help them deal with addicted parents.

    by Natasha Friend

    Samantha has a secret... It's hard to be a thirteen-year-old-girl. But it's even harder when your father's a drunk. It adds an extra layer to everything - your family's reaction to things, the friends you're willing to bring home, the way you see yourself and the world. For Samantha, it's something that has been going on for so long that she's almost used to it. Only, you never get used to it. Especially when it starts to get worse.

    Sam knows things have to stop. But she doesn't know how to make them stop. So she picks a random girl in the library and starts sending her notes, asking for advice. And she keeps an extra-close eye on her little brother, trying to protect him from getting hurt. Sam doesn't want her family to fall apart. But that might be what has to happen for things to be okay again.

    As she did in the prize-winning Perfect, Natasha Friend has written a powerful, honest novel that gets to the heart of one girl's problems - and the strength she must find in order to cope.
