"A Million Little Pieces" is a true story of James Fray's struggle with addiction, criminal activity, and non-mainstream views in one of the most mainstream and structured environments in the world: a rehab center and mental institution. The book details James's struggle to cope with knowing he can overcome his addictions (but not the way society wants him to), the friends he makes, and the conversations he has.

"A Million Little Pieces" by James Frey is a brutally
explicit, honest novel about what Frey went through in a durg/alcohol rehab center. It not only focused on his experiences in the rehab center, but it also gave some insight into the horrible things that happened to him and that he did while using - the incomprehensible life of an addict.
The book made me laugh, made me ill, it shocked and saddened me, and I cried at the end. It made me appreciate NOT having to go through what James Frey went through.
The book sadly tells the statistics - only 15% of those that leave the treatment center, actually "recover" and stay clean
