Hey, Good Luck Out There – Georgia Toews

Full disclosure: Georgia is the daughter of Miriam so great writing may be inherited! This first novel is a gritty story about substance abuse, specifically alcoholism. There is no supportive network for the un-named young woman, not in the 30-day rehab program, not in post-rehab life: mean girls abound throughout. There is a telling phrase on page 107: “I didn’t want to lie, or tell the truth”, a telling dilemma. This is a solitary struggle. What happens when one is alone in a war with an intrusive inner creature? This is a compelling look at someone both vulnerable and brazen.
