Augusta, Gone: A True Story

Dudman's unflinching account of her daughter's rebellion - poetically, rawly written - will strike chords with many readers. Augusta is every mother's worst nightmare, an angst-ridden 15-year-old out to turn her family's world upside-down. As drinking, smoking and drug use take over Augusta's life, Dudman is swept along in her turbulent wake, wondering where she went wrong and how she can reclaim her daughter from the world of addiction. Divorced, Dudman singlehandedly raises Augusta and her brother Jack in Maine, but when things get too tough at home, she sends Augusta to a special school in Oregon for drug treatment. There, her rebelliousness persists, and she stubbornly refuses help. Augusta's recovery is slow and painful, but Dudman, in narrating this brave memoir, never seeks the reader's sympathy.
