Blog Tour: Jagged Little Edges by Lorelie Rozzano

Edgy Addiction Fiction
Date Published: 1/15/13

British Columbia author Lorelie Rozzano has taken her own life experience shackled by the chains of addiction and is turning it into a series of fictional novels that weave first-hand experience into compelling stories. The book takes you on a ten year journey, through the depths of despair, as Lyndsey, a darkly fascinating protagonist, looks for her happily ever after. This story will move and inspire you. It will leave you on the edge of your seat wanting more. The first in the series – Jagged Little Edges is now available.

My Review:
This book seemed so real and the fact that the author has taken true life experiences to create a fictional novel that shows the severity of drug addiction.

This novel was amazing to read and to get an inside view on what happens to someone who gets sucked down that path of self-destruction.

It's so easy to say from the outside, you can't imagine what would cause someone to do that to themselves, but Lorelie Rozzano has created a main character who is so engaging that I felt like I understood her motivation.

I am so pleased that you are sharing Lorelie's novel. It is important to talk about addiction. We need to be more open about this topic.

I loved this book and could not put it down! Every young person and their parents should read this book. The author's view on addiction and the dysfunction that surrounds it was compelling. I can't wait for book 2!

We all know, or love someone, suffering from the disease of addiction. Addiction effects one out of ten. I'm the one. Addiction is a progressive and terminal illness. It is also the most treatable. The tradegy is most will never come forward because of shame. Jagged Little Edges is a raw and graphic read of one young womans spiral into self-destrcuction, addiction and despair. Lyndsey, the main character, is a darkly fascintting protagonist. She could be your sister, your friend, your daughter, your wife. She could be you. This book will leave you on the edge of your seat. It will inspire you and show you the way out. Not only is this book a good read, it's a book with a job. Hope really is closer than you think. All the best, Lorelie Rozzano.

I purchased this book on Amazon and breezed through it over a weekend. The story is engaging and reflects the author's personal experience and knowledge in the area of addiction. The story initially demonstrates and highlights the unique challenges of growing up in an alcoholic family and development of co-dependent/addictive behaviour patterns which are a potential consequence of this situation. The author then takes us through the main character's escalating fall into addiction, with a first hand view from her personal experience and clinical background. The final chapters take advantage of the author's in depth knowledge of the residential treatment setting and illustrate the hope and miracle of recovery from addiction.
The novel is a page turner and a very easy read, yet filled with insights into addiction, co-dependency and recovery.
My only criticism relates to the editorial process, which I would rate as poor at times.While distracting at times, it did not take away from the other very positive aspects of this novel.
I would definitely recommend this book to anyone looking for a light read with the added benefit of learning about addiction and recovery from an informed author.
