Beneath a Meth Moon by Jacqueline Woodson

beneath a meth moonLaurel Daneau’s mother and grandmother were killed in Hurricane Katrina and, no matter how “good” her life might have looked to outsiders, she was haunted by their deaths.  Her relationships with her best friend and boyfriend weren’t enough to ease the pain, so she took to drinking and using drugs.  Before long, she went from popular cheerleader to shunned meth-head.  And though Laurel’s downward spiral was evident to many people who knew her, her own father ignored the signs until it was far too late…

This book is unique in that it’s both a cautionary tale for non-users and a beacon of hope for those already struggling with addiction.  I highly recommend this book for all parents, tweens, and teens.

Happy Reading!

  1. Sounds like a great book for all tweens and teens. The cautionary message seems to be heard better this way.
