Saving Madeline

I have just finished a book that will stick with me for maybe the rest of my life you may think I am joking but I am not. This book has something that I think everyone needs to be aware of. I don't like to think about people doing drugs and how it effects their lives but that is reality. In this book I learned how drugs can effect not only the person doing them but the people that love them the most. Rachel Ann Nunes has done a excellent job giving me a in site of what goes on when someone is trying to protect their loved ones who might be in trouble due to their drug addiction like Parker did with Madeline. It's tragic that Madeline's mother was more concerned about he next "hit" than she was about her children and in the end it lead to her being in jail for neglect. In this book you will learn that Parker was accused of "kidnapping" his own daughter to keep her out of danger from her mother when he found some meth sitting on the top of the T.V. when e picked her up for his weekly visit. Parker was doing what any parent in his situation would do and he took Madeline to keep her safe. Well as you can probably guess that didn't work out so great. Caitlin is Parker's attorney. I love the way that Rachel Ann Nunes give you a love story in the middle of trying to learn what happens to Madeline. There is one part of the book and I won't tell you what part it is, that I cried, I felt so helpless to the character and what was happening at the time.

This book helped me see how drugs effect your life and what they do to the families. I know I will be buying this book when it comes out. It is my favorite book of Rachel Ann Nunes. She did a excellent job telling a story about a hard subject.


  1. I love Nunes! I hope I win at least on one of the sites that i have entered already. she is the BEST author.
