From my friend and tae kwon do buddy, Denise Brecher:
“My daughter quoted you in school today. They had someone come to school to talk to students about chemical dependency. The man who spoke to Jamie’s class said that in his family the word “alcoholic” was only used on drunk homeless people on the street. He said that because this he never recognized that he was an alcoholic until he was 33. Jamie raised her hand and told the counselor that Kaylie Jones said the same thing in her memoir LIES MY MOTHER NEVER TOLD ME. The counselor said that he was always looking for books on these issues and he was going to go out and buy it.”
Thank you, Jamie Brecher. I love that kids talk so openly about this stuff. I love that Jamie’s mom let her read my book. There is no greater honor.
