Intense and Emotional

Intervention is a raw, painful look inside teen drug addiction and the resulting trauma unleashed on all those involved with the addict.

I recommend this book to anyone who might be suffering through a similar situation if that reader is looking for a flicker of hope or a sense of connectedness, even if it's connectedness to fictional characters. The characters are at their breaking points and the drama feels real and isn't at all pretty though the story ends with hope. Those struggling with faith issues might benefit, too, as a few characters wrestle out their feelings toward God and what He has allowed to happen in their lives.

I didn't connect with the characters. Reading about a highly intense situation containing two very broken women lashing and battling and hurting was a struggle.

As far as casual, escapist reading; there is the mystery involved in solving the murder, and suspense as the pieces of the puzzle fall together. I did have a few questions regarding the details involved with police procedures and Barbara's hands-on help in several scenes.
