WHAT I LEARNED: 1. This is the first Alateen book I’ve ever read & I was not prepared! I should’ve had a box of tissues along with it – especially for the “Happy/Sad” section that begins on page 300. The simplicity & direct honesty felt like I was reading a bunch of diary entries from kids of all ages that I could identify with since I, too, grew up in an alcoholic home.
2. This book doesn’t just cover the Steps, but also the Traditions! Each section ends with a workshop that I’m going to start using myself …& with my sponsees.
