In powerful parallel stories, mother and daughter give mesmerizing first-person accounts of the nightmare that shattered their family and the amazing journey they took to find their way back to each other. Claire Fontaine's relentless cross-country search for her missing child and ultimate decision to force her into treatment in Eastern Europe is a gripping tale of dead ends, painful revelations, and, at times, miracles. Mia Fontaine describes her refuge in the seedy underworld of felons and addicts as well as the jarring shock of the extreme, if loving, school that enabled her to overcome depression and self-loathing. Both women detail their remarkable process of self-examination and healing with humor and unsparing honesty. "Come Back" is an unforgettable true story of love and transformation that will resonate with mothers and daughters everywhere.

Interesting idea, it coming from the mother and daughters perspectives. In some. It's its almost unbelievable, especially the daughters experience of boot camp. A good read with a hopeful ending.

I have to disagree with lenore. Having been through a drug rehab myself. I felt the truth come out through the book. I related to Mia on this level. As a mother I empathized the Claire. Theirs is a journey through Hell.
