Publisher Comments:

The story of a girl who is doing everything to hurt herself and a mother who would try anything to try to save her.

True, she had stopped coming down for breakfast. Stayed up in her room, ran out the door late for school, missed the bus and had to have a ride. But you think, well, that's how they are, aren't they, teenagers? And you try to remember how you were, but you were different and the times were different and it was so long ago. And she's suddenly so angry at you, but then, another time, she's just the same. She's just your little girl. You sit with her and you talk about something, or you go shopping for school clothes and everything seems all right. And you forget how you stood in her room and how the center of your stomach felt so cold. When you found the cigarette. When you found the blue pipe. When you found the little bag she said was aspirin.

Synopsis:

"Augusta, Gone" is the true story of a 15-year-old girl who is doing everything to hurt herself and a mother who would try anything to save her. Dudman shares the tumultuous years of her daughter's adolescence and her own inability to heal her teenager's wounds, let alone exert control.

About the Author

Martha Tod Dudman served as President and General manager of Dudman Communications, a group of radio stations, from 1990 to 1999. Now a professional fundraiser, she lives in Northeast Harbor, Maine, with her son and daughter.

I read this book. I disliked it. The only reason why, was because I couldn't relate. I do understand what Martha Tod Dudman went through, you get the whole story. The theme that I came up with was stated in the book, "There is no magic key". I truly believe that, but what I also believe is there is a way out. The child has the magic key and they decide whether or not they want to use it. Augusta didn't at least not for awhile, until her wake up call in Oregon. Then it says that she got into a college to get her GED. The thing that I was more disappointed I want to know Augusta's side of the story. The notes and the questions that were left hanging was numerous and I didn't get my closure. I was always not happy with the fact that Jack was not mentioned more. I do know the book was about Augusta primarily, but then she shouldn't have spoken of Jack getting in trouble too if she was going to elaborate more. All in all I truly could not connect to this book. It was frankly a waste of my time and I like books like this one for example Go Ask Alice. I hope that when you read this book you have a better relation to it than I have had.
