Review quote

"A harrowing story of addiction and mental illness." -- People "A worthy addition to the rock canon." -- New York Post "Weiland's lively, vernacular memoir tells the sadly wasted but ultimately self-directed tale of her meteoric rise as a model from impoverished, half-Mexican roots to a precipitous plunge into drug addiction....Weiland's forthright, resilient can-do spirit injects this sad story with a healthy moral." -- Publishers Weekly "A brutally honest and compelling account of Mary Weiland's struggles with addiction and mental illness. Brave, bold and unfiltered, Mary's writing injects humor and levity in a way that is both entertaining and necessary. I have no doubt that this important book will help save many lives." -- Dave Navarro "Mary Weiland's beautifully crafted memoir takes the reader through the journey that is so very common today, the slow drift into addiction and mental illness. Honest, clear, and accurate, Fall to Pieces is perhaps the most vivid rendition of this experience I have ever come across." -- Dr. Drew Pinsky, host of Loveline and Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew, author of The Mirror Effect and Cracked "Mary Weiland describes the depths of madness and addiction with surprising clarity. Fall to Pieces is a wild, gripping story, told with intense emotional honesty." -- Terri Cheney, New York Times bestselling author of Manic "For all the death and devastation detailed in its pages, this book is surprisingly funny." -- Reuters
