The Residue Years by Mitchell Jackson
The Residue Years

lakeithae, August 19, 2013

I was lucky enough to receive an advanced copy of this book. I was excited to have the opportunity to read about the place where I grew up. I too was a child (the oldest child too) of addict parents in Northeast Portland during the late 80's and early 90's so, the story of the Residue Years deeply resonated with me. Mitchell Jackson gives voice to the many youth who grew up under these circumstances and helps readers understand the cognitive dissonance that many of us lived with each day. Say no to drugs, sell drugs while simultaneously hating what drugs have done to your family and community, using the money from selling drugs to do what feels like the right thing for your family, etc.
I found myself missing the characters and wondering what they were up to during the times I had to put the book down.
