REVIEW: Catch A Falling Star by Keith Julius

Catch A Falling Star
The CASA Chronicles Volume 1
Keith Julius

Aleisha Turner was young and attractive, a mother of three beautiful children. Aleisha was also a heroin addict. An overdose sends the young woman's life into turmoil when her children are taken away from her. She finds herself in a Rehab center, the first step in what will prove to be a difficult recovery. She faces a long road ahead to restore normalcy to her life and bring her family back together. Beverly Stone works as a Court Appointed Special Advocate. Her responsibility is to see that Aleisha's children are living in a healthy environment conducive to their welfare, while encouraging their mother to break the deadly habit that has come to monopolize her life. Along the way Beverly muse delve deeper and deeper into a world she could have never imagined, experiencing life from the perspective of the forgotten people who reside in inner city America.


While this is an incredible story, it is also an incredible eye opener. This story not only reeled me in and made me want to root for the character, but it also made me open my mind to the cold hard truth about addictions and what happens to not only the addict but the people in their lives, including the children involved.

The character, Aleisha, had so many hardships in her life that it really made me want to hurt for her. She was such a strong person until she started feeling alone and abandoned. I felt as if I was living this life with the character and not just reading words off the pages.

The story-line was so strong and empowering. This author did an incredible job of bringing forth a problem that is constantly happening everywhere. The sad realization that this author hits home on is how many people truly feel alone in this world and feel as if there is no one to depend on. I applaud this author for the courage it took to write such an incredible eye opener. A piece of my heart and soul has been left within the pages of this book and I highly recommend it.
CAUTION: Due to addictions, death, and some graphic scenes, READER DISCRETION IS ADVISED.
