"I found Lindsay's story of Amber very moving, wanting to continue so I could see what happens next. Amber is a character you hope for, pray for and want to rescue. If you have children of your own, you will feel for this child."-Kimberly Cicetti, Life Coach
"In an age where teens face similar struggles as those of Amber and Alicia it is important that they are able to find solace in a novel such as "Amber Shades of Grey."-Sarah Bagley, High School Teacher
Living in a happy, loving home didn't last long for Amber Jacobs and her sister Alicia. At the tender age of four, Amber's father abandons the family, leaving her mother in a deep depression that leads to alcohol and drug abuse.
Amber's misery escalates from that point, and by the time she is five years old, she has taken over the duties of a mother. With their mother's frequent absences, followed by late-night, drunken arrivals, Amber and Alicia grow up not knowing what real love is. When their mother disappears five years later, the girls get a brief reprieve after being placed in a foster home with two very loving people.
But after their mother undergoes rehabilitation, the girls are returned to her. Now Amber and Alicia must wait-the dreaded wait for the monumental "something" to happen that will force their mother back to the bottle and set Amber and Alicia's lives on end yet again .
