I'll be the first to admit as I started out reading Thirsty I wasn't sure if I was going to like it. With that said it didn't take me long to get hooked and I literally finished it on a Sunday afternoon after church. It is hard to not get caught up in Blake's life and feel like you are right there experiencing her ups and downs. Commadre is felt in her deep desire to belong, to fit in, to feel like she is a somebody. The story follows her desire to drink to the point of complete drunkenness and the realization that once the numb wears off she still has the same demons to face. Additionally the toxicity of a relationship that is lost somewhere between her emotions and the bottle. Finally that true friendship still comes through in the end. Hammonds opens closed doors in a revealing, captivating story of love, loss, betrayal, friendship and alcoholism.
