Resenha:

Sem palavras. Foi assim que eu me senti ao terminar de ler esse livro. Sabe aquele livro que vai te deixar pensando por dias, meses, ou até anos? Saving Beck é um deles. Inspirado na história real da luta contra as drogas pelo filho da autora, a verdade nua e crua do que um vício causa em uma família é retratado em suas páginas. Passeando entre cenas atuais e do passado, Courtney nos mostra o desenrolar de tudo, não medindo palavras ou sentimentos, destruindo seu coração e mostrando a dura realidade do vício. Extremamente bem escrito, você se sente dentro daquela família, lutando junto com todos, sentindo suas frustrações e analisando como seus atos influenciam a história. Existe algum culpado para o início de tudo? Existe mais de um culpado para o desenrolar da história? Ou são todos vítimas? Recomendo fortemente a leitura!

Review:

Speechless. That is how I was finishing this book. Courtney delivered a raw, honest story about addiction and what it can do with a family. It’s a book you’ll be thinking about for years to come. Loosely based in her son’s war against drugs, you can feel the truth behind those words. It broke my heart, but at the same time, I felt like part of the family and fighting with them for everything. I cried, I sobbed, and I’m another person after reading it. Days after finishing it, sometimes I’m trying to discovery if there was a reason for all that happened. Is there a culprit? More than one? Was everyone a victim? Read the book, you’ll not regret it.

Sinopse de SAVING BECK:

Chega um tempo em que oferecer a sua vida em troca da do seu filho não funciona, você realiza que isso nunca será o bastante.

A agulha fria na sua veia quente, no início era um conforto bem vindo para o meu filho. Mas isso se tornou o monstro que nos mantinha separados.

A Heroína mentiu, meu filho acreditou. Ela o levou para um mundo onde o último ano não existiu, para um lugar onde seu pai ainda estava vivo. O que Beck não entendia, é que ela não podia trazer seu pai de volta da morte. Ela não podia tirar sua dor, não permanentemente.

Você pensa que isso não pode acontecer com você, com seus filhos, sua família nunca estará nessa situação.
Eu também pensei isso. Mas você está errado.

Entre no nosso mundo, e veja você mesmo.
Assista meu garoto de ouro virar escravo para uma crescente epidemia.
Assista-me tentar salvá-lo.

Vício em drogas tem um preço.
Confie em mim, você não está equipado para pagá-lo.

Não perca esse romance que irá quebrar seu coração, evocar emoções e também esperanças – ele o deixará mudado para sempre.

SAVING BECK 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 heart wrenching, evocative, yet hopeful novel—it will leave you forever changed.

 

 

Excerpt:

I stare at the door, and this is the same room and that is the same door, and this is the same blue-tiled floor. For a minute, I’m back in that moment, and the doctor is coming in. I’d waited for hours and his face was so grave and I knew, I knew, before he could utter a word.

I shook my head because I didn’t want to hear what was coming next, but he spoke anyway.

Matt’s injuries were insurmountable, he’d said. We did everything we could.

But everything wasn’t enough, and my husband died.

“Is it a different doctor tonight?” I ask suddenly. “I need a different doctor. One who can save my son.”

I know it’s illogical. I know it was never the doctor’s fault, but it doesn’t matter because Jessica is nodding. “It’s a different doctor tonight,” she tells me. “Dr. Grant, and he’s very, very good.”

“Okay,” I whisper. “Okay.”

“If you need anything, you tell me,” Jessica says and I can see that she means it. She likes me. Or she feels sorry for me. It doesn’t matter which. I nod and she’s gone, and I’m alone.

Just like I was a year ago, and just like that night all I can do is pace.

I’m a caged mama wolf and there’s nothing I can do, but I know that if I stop moving, Beck might die. My energy is attached to his energy. I have to move. It all depends on me.

So I walk in circles.

I walk six paces, over the six white tiles, then I turn, taking three steps over the blue. I tread back six paces over the white, and then turn again, taking three more over the blue.

I will not stop, Beck. I won’t fail you. I won’t.

It becomes rhythmic, and I match my breaths with my steps. I’m a machine, a time-keeper, a being made of clock-work as I walk in circles, marking time. Every step I take, Beck is still alive. I feel it in my heart. It’s all up to me.
