Synopsis

There comes a time when offering your life for your child’s doesn’t work, when you realize that it’ll never be enough. 

The cold needle in his warm vein was a welcome comfort to my son at first. But then it became the monster that kept us apart. 

Heroin lied, and my son believed. It took him to a world where the last year didn’t happen, to a place where his father was still alive. What Beck didn’t understand was that it couldn’t bring his father back from the dead. It couldn’t take away his pain, not permanently. 

You think it can’t happen to you, that your kids, your family, will never be in this situation. 
I thought that too. But you’re wrong. 

Step into our world, and see for yourself.
Watch my golden boy become a slave to this raging epidemic. Watch me try and save him. 

Drug addiction comes with a price.
Trust me, you’re not equipped to pay it. 

Don’t miss this heartwrenching, evocative, yet hopeful novel—it will leave you forever changed.

Review

Saving Beck by Courtney Cole is an emotionally gripping tale about love, loss, addiction and ultimately hope. This story has captivated my whole body, heart and soul. It has been a few days and yet I am still at a loss for words and emotionally drained because this story is heart-wrenchingly raw.

Courtney Cole has graciously opened herself up by sharing something so personal to her and her family. I must commend the author for her strength to do so and thank her for sharing. This is not only a story about Beck’s journey to recovery, but a story that will inspire others and show them that there is always HOPE, even in their darkest days.

Addiction is real and the ugly truth of it is that many people sink so far into their addiction that they don’t remember who they were before. This story gives me hope for my cousin who has struggled with addiction for so many years. After so many relapses I have lost hope, but this story has opened my eyes up and made me realize that all hope is not lost.

Saving Beck is a story that every reader needs to experience whether you know someone who has struggled with addiction or not. It is one of those stories that will expose you to heartache and hope…
