What I Should Have Said: A Poetry Memoir About Losing A Child to Addiction by Lanette Sweeney Is Available from Finishing Line Press

If it were fiction, if it did not lacerate the heart to know the truth behind it, Lanette Sweeney’s poetry memoir about losing a child to drugs would only be tragically beautiful. As it is, it is devastating, featuring poetry by her lost son Kyle [Fisher-Hertz] along with her own. Speaking the unspeakable for her own peace, and for the understanding of the rest of us, is Sweeney’s mission. The only thing better than reading these tender, elegiac, broken words would be for her to never have needed to write them.

–Jacquelyn Mitchard, author, The Deep End of  the Ocean and 18 other novels.
