Melody Carlson is absolutely amazing with Crystal Lies, writing as if you yourself are holding the pen, stepping into the shoes of Glennis.
Crystal Lies is an informative, heart-wrenching account of one of America's most devastating issues, affecting people of all ages and walks of life: addiction to crystal methamphetamine.
In my own life, I have seen what addiction of other kinds can do to families, and am grateful for a glimpse into this world without having to experience it firsthand. This horror hurts not only the addict himself, but also can be ruinous to the family and friends.
This book is not only an exceptional novel, but us a useful tool to families and addicts themselves. God bless you, Melody Carlson, for having the courage to write such an important story. -- Tammy Hornbeck, Christian Book Previews.com

    This review was written for Crystal Lies.
    this was a very real to life story. I am not sure I could of done what Glennis did. But I thought it showed what someone would for their child. I am now 73 but I see in my own church families that are going through some very hard things. They all need lots of prayer.

    Are you a fan of happy books that sugar coat life and make you feel warm and cozy inside? Well then you will be in for a shock after reading this book. I'm not an expert on crystal meth so I learned a lot from reading this book. Reading about how the family got torn apart because of the drug addiction was very difficult. Everyone turns against each other, the family didn't have a good sense of unity. Since I've read many Melody Carlson books, I was prepared for a gritty, realistic story that would not hide back any details. Well reading this book was like a punch in the gut. The scene where Glennis finds the stash of needles under Jacob's bed and he keeps lying to her about them was very emotional. You really could feel her character wanting to break down at that point. Now there were times during the book where I wanted to yell at Glennis because she kept ignoring the signs of her son's addiction. Of course I know as a parent, there are times where you turn a blind eye because you want to see the best in your kids. It just made the story sadder because things could have been prevented if people had just noticed earlier. I think the best thing about this book is how realistic it is. There is a note in the beginning of the book where the author writes about how she knows what it's like first hand to be the mother of an addict. I believe this book should be read by everybody. It's a heart wrenching tale but the events mentioned take place every day. It's a sobering (no pun intended) read will really shake you up. VERY HIGHLY recommended.

    This review was written for Crystal Lies.
    I really enjoyed this book, and would heartily recommend it to anyone. It is the story of a family dealing the difficulties of a son addicted to Crystal Meth. I enjoyed the writing style, and learned a lot about what drug addiction can do to a family and and an individual. Melody Carlson states in the forward to the book that her son won a successful battle with Crystal Meth, and though this book is fiction, we can be confident that the author has a good idea of what she is writing about.It is a good read and I have already ordered Melody Carlson's book Where's Alice - a book about a woman with a daughter who suffers with shizophrenia. As Christian's, we must not hide from what we sadly regard as " shameful secrets" - but rather seek to understand them, and bring them to the light of Christ. Melody Carlson has been successful in doing this, and these books will soon be in my church library.

    This review was written for Crystal Lies.
    Although fortunately I have not personally had to deal with this particular problem, Carlson's book was very applicable to our times. I liked her writing style, her realistic yet somewhat humorous take on life (not candy-coated like some Christian novels). She demonstrated in this novel the 2 step forward, 1 and a half step backward walk that often represents our Christian journey. This was my 1st Melody Carlson book, but I'm sure not my last.
