On the surface Liz Petrone looks as if she has it all: A family, a budding writing career, a successful marriage. But, like so many women, she is desperately lonely. She's also dealing with the life and death of her alcoholic mother and the ghosts of her own suicidal past.
The Price of Admission takes us on a journey with Liz from loss into renewed life. Raw, unflinchingly honest, and surprisingly funny, Liz writes from a universally understood place of struggle, whether that is the deep darkness of grief or the hazy, yet joyful, dimness of demanding everyday lives spent caring for ourselves and our families.

Feels like coffee with a wise friend
Full Disclosure: I live in Central New York and know Liz a little, but I wouldn’t write a review if I wasn’t genuinely moved. I have faced loss and debilitating depression and now have a dog who adds so much joy to our lives so I suppose Liz’s words speak to me because her stories and struggles feel familiar. Her story is different than mine, but because she writes so well, and honestly, and simply, it feels like listening to wise, kind friend. Every sentence feels authentic and humble and every page is both uplifting and grim, which is the life of a mom. This book is worth your time. Enjoy.
