Broken Gifts is a horrifying look into the depths of abuse and addiction, yet every chapter also seems to shine hope into the reader's rapidly beating heart. Looking back on the trauma in his life, Tyler Auck finds beauty. This beauty is as miraculous as a flower growing in the crack of a sidewalk. His story is awful. But, by the end of the book you will be cheering him on as he continues his journey in recovery. He shouldn't be alive today. But, he is. And he's kicking addiction's ass every step of the way.
