“Drinking doesn't only effect you it effects the people around you. Sam's dad comes home every night drunk and worries her and her brother. When the daughter Sam stays the night at a friennds house and worries about her brother hoping her dad doesn't come home druck and do anything to hurt him.
My friend will be at my house and her dad drinks and she always worries about her sister back at home. Hoping her dad doesn't come home drunk.
I think Natasha Friend wrote this book to show there are familes out there that have mom and dads that drink. ”
