"Beautiful Disasters" follows the downward spiral of the author's son from when his birth dad died when Cameron was 15 until his own untimely death at age 18. The author feels that her son's grief manifested into major depression which was the precursor to meth addiction, breaking the law, and finally his own death by suicide. This book shares the mental health professionals visits and rehabilitation they pursed in hopes of saving Cameron. The goal of this book is to make parents and others who come in touch with teens, aware of the signs of depression, grief, and substance abuse so they can perhaps a save a life. From a review... "While this story is grim, it is written with frankness and candor and can offer insights or solace to families going through a similar experience."
