    Can any one recommend a book for a 12 year old girl to understand what an alcoholic is?

    Her mom is an alcoholic and I am looking for a book which explains what an alcoholic is and show her how she can not live her life in fear of her mom going back drinking.  It is her mom's problem and no one else is responsible for it.

    My name is Barbra-Lee and I am an Alcoholic.  I am also the child of two Alcoholics so I've done some research.
    Some of the literature that was given to me at ALATEEN meetings helped ( ALATEEN is for the children and Teens of Alcoholics. )  Also, the Big Book of A.A. has many case examples of alcoholics in it that I found some common ground with.  You can generally find your closest A.A. or ALATEEN meeting in the Community Services section of the White Pages.  I hope this helps some.  Barbra-Lee
