Entertainment Weekly ranked Beautiful Boy as the #1 Non-Fiction Book for 2008.
#1 BEAUTIFUL BOY, David Sheff
When Sheff’s oldest child, Nic, became addicted to crystal meth, the once imaginative kid turned into a twitchy, larcenous tweaker who stole from his kid brother’s piggy bank and lied to everyone, especially his dad. Sheff’s is the story of a child’s addiction, but it is also a statement about parental love and its limitations.
