Luchando por la vida… Mi historia
Contrariamente a la idea de que son los padres los que dejan un legado a los hijos, en este libro, es Alex, a través de su historia, el que le otorga una herencia a su madre y a toda la familia: la de la lucha incansable por reconstruirse a sí mismo, lejos de los espacios de las drogas. Dilucidar qué sucedió en esta historia, puede, sin duda, ayudar a otros padres a que conozcan más sobre el mundo de las adicciones, así como darles a conocer los distintos clichés que se han producido en torno a esta enfermedad; para que así, al contar con más herramientas, puedan enfrentar, de la mejor manera, las complejidades de una adicción. El hilo conductor de este libro, es la propia narración de Alex, así como la perspectiva de la familia y los amigos.

A poignant story about drug addiction.
This is a very touching and heart-warming book about the tragedies of drug addiction and how hard it is to leave the habit behind.
This is book is about Alejandro Sierra’s journey through addiction. The story shows first-hand the pain and heartbreak that parents feel when their son was addicted to drugs. There is a powerlessness that comes over parents, one that can be soul destroying over time. This is especially the case when they lose their son to addiction.
This book will be of help to all parents who are undergoing similar circumstances. It is always great to know that you are not alone and that other people also struggle from similar difficulties when coping with a child who is addicted to drugs. Addiction cannot be underestimated. Alex shows the reader how hard this is through his open and honest story and letters in this book. He shows how he struggled for life, and how his family really tried to help him. I believe that one of the important themes of this book is that with the help from professionals and family, teens can overcome drug addiction. It is not something that has to consume them for the rest of their lives. We all have a choice to make our lives addiction-free. But we have to want to achieve this.
I loved this book! I think it is a book that is important for our times, given the ubiquity of drugs in the lives of our teens. Thank you, Alex, you have touched my heart very deeply as a reader.

Struggling for Life My Story
Contrary to the idea that it is the parents who leave a legacy for their children, in this book, it is Alex who bestows a legacy—a gift—to his mother and the rest of his family through his tireless struggle of rebuilding himself away from the world of drugs. Alex’s own narration, along with the perspectives of his family and friends, drives a compelling and emotional yet incredibly important narrative. Understanding Alex’s story can, without a doubt, help parents and loved ones learn more about the world of addiction and familiarize them with different stereotypes about this illness. Equipped with such tools, the hope is that they can face the complexities of a loved one’s addiction in the best way possible.
