PHILADELPHIA, PA – On June 23, memoirist Tracy Viola will sign copies of her powerful debut book, Pretty Wrecked: Confessions of a Teen Addict and Her Road to Recovery, at Barnes & Noble in Devon from 1-2 PM EST. This event celebrates the release of a memoir that has already topped Amazon’s Ebook charts as a #1 Best Seller and #1 New Release.

Pretty Wrecked offers an unflinching look at Viola’s journey through teenage drug addiction and her remarkable path to sobriety. Written in bite-sized vignettes, the memoir chronicles her life in the affluent Main Line suburbs of Philadelphia, where she maintained a private school image and good grades while secretly battling substance abuse. Viola shares her two-decade journey of recovery with humor, vivid storytelling, and heartfelt honesty.

Using the titles of her favorite ’80s songs as chapter headings, Viola recounts her descent into addiction, her lowest points, stints in rehab, and the triumph of her continuous sobriety. The narrative serves as a beacon of hope for those struggling with addiction and their loved ones. It also reflects Viola’s personal growth as a wife, mother, business owner, and human being free from substance abuse.

Critics have praised Pretty Wrecked for its bravery and inspiring message. Publishers Weekly’s Booklife review states, “Her bravery will sow seeds of hope for fellow addicts and those who love them, alongside reassurance of a way forward and a life without substances, fear, or judgment.”

The Temple News notes Viola’s success in maintaining sobriety, helping others facing similar challenges, and reminding readers of how far she has come. The Villanovan highlights her young age at achieving sobriety and her motivation to break the silence around addiction.
