Imperfect Birds by Anne Lamott

With Imperfect Birds, author Anne Lamott revisits the Ferguson family, subjects of her earlier novels, Crooked Little Heart and Rosie. Rosie is now 17, gets straight A's and works two jobs. She's also bartering sex for drugs, trying any illicit substance she can find, and becoming a masterful liar in the process. Her mother, Elizabeth, is torn between hovering too close and granting Rosie too much independence. Rosie manages to work her way around her mother's urine tests, but as her decline into addiction becomes unstoppable, Elizabeth struggles to find the proper answers. Anne Lamott's novel has received positive reviews with the Washington Post saying, "This is a mature, thoughtful novel about an all-too-common family crisis, and in typical Lamott fashion, it doesn't ignore the pain or exalt in despair. The salvation she offers in these pages is hard-won."
