AUTHOR

Weaver, David J.

SUMMARY

Only Mortals Can Be Heroes is a true story about a young boy, Adam Weaver, who experiences the pleasures and pains of the drug culture. Adam's adventure describes how he started drugging at age 12 because he wanted to fit in with his peers. After marijuana and beer came Ritalin, Oxycontin, Ecstasy, LSD, uppers, downers, cocaine and heroin and everything in between. The story is punctuated with a cocaine overdose at age 16 and a heroin overdose a few years later. The book winds it way around themes of low self-esteem, the insecurity of being adopted, the power of addiction, support of family where none should be expected, incidents of tough love, life on the street, beatings by drug dealers, treatment, relapse, more treatment, and at last hope but no guarantees. Only Mortals Can Be Heroes transfigures the reader by standing him in Adam's shoes and inviting him to wrap his arms around Adam to love and protect him.Weaver, David J. is the author of 'Only Mortals Can Be Heroes A True Story About Drug Addiction' with ISBN 9780977091607 and ISBN 0977091600.
