Sensitive Topic

Eli has it all until he falls prey to the addiction of drugs. His last use of heroin nearly kills him, but his girlfriend Savannah saves him. Rehab is the only option to get him the help he needs, but it's hard being taken from your life and having it turned upside down.

When Eli meets Libby, he just sees her as the crazy girl who manages to throw him for a loop. As time goes on, he realizes there's more to her than meets the eye. But there's no room for relationships in rehab. Eli is told that he needs to focus on himself and find his lifeline, the one thing that will keep him grounded and fight the urge to use drugs.

LIFELINE is a very raw and rough around the edges read in a sense that it is realistic and emotional. I felt like I was truly seeing things through Eli's eyes. This book shows the negative impact of using drugs and how it can hurt everyone around you. It is a sensitive topic so I would only recommend it to older readers.


Final Verdict: I would recommend this to fans of sensitive topics, coming to age, and finding yourself.
