"An exceptional book to read! How To Grow An Addict is a must read...Looking forward to many books by J. A. Wright."
Catherine Townsend-Lyon

"This book had me intrigued from the first page to the very last word, I just wished it ended a little different than what it did but overall it was a pretty good book. I loved how J.A. was able to make this book feel like a memoir without being one and in my book to pull that off, that's pretty darn good. Thank You to J.A. Wright for writing a story that makes you to drop everything and read this book in one sitting!"
Holly Flora

"What could have been a depressing read is ultimately hilarious in places, engaging and uplifting. One of the best of 2015."
