Overview

At first, seventh-grader Casey refuses to play the key role in an intervention that will confront his dad's drinking and drug use, but then he begins to break through to the reality that no one in his family has faced before. With engaging and diverse characters, a strong vein of humor, and an unexpected outcome, Casey's story demonstrates how to face the risks and discover the power of living the truth, while realistically conveying the impact on young teens of living with an alcoholic or addicted parent—a situation that affects one in four American young people today.

Reviews

“A heartfelt story that speaks the truth about alcohol’s grip on the family, and inspires hope and healing for those seeking a solution.” —William Cope Moyers, author, Broken: My Story of Addiction and Redemption

“I found The Prince of Denial captivating! Casey’s story addresses the Don’t Talk rule that families so quickly take on. As he shows the reader, with the courage to begin acknowledging and speaking his truth and his reality, he is no longer alone.” —Claudia Black, PhD, author, It Will Never Happen to Me

“Picture a troubled teen quietly removing this book from the school library shelves, then sitting down between the book stacks and devouring it.” —Foreword Reviews
