"In her profoundly insightful debut, Viola gifts readers a front-row seat to the wrenching realities of addiction—and a window into the hope of recovery." 

"Tracy emphasizes the importance of personal choice, self-realization, and finding a supportive community. She credits her success to the principle of making the ‘next right decision’."

"Author Tracy Viola will talk about her debut memoir, “Pretty Wrecked: Confessions of a Teen Addict and Her Road To Recovery” at Unity Java in Philadelphia at 2 p.m. Saturday, April 27." 

"Tracy wrote her story from a unique perspective - after 28 years of sobriety she decided it was finally time to share her story of triumph and her strength in recovery."


"Tracy Viola is one of these people who matter. We are lucky she is paying it forward and telling her story. To her I say a simple thank you. She is a hero."

"Pretty Wrecked is an autobiography in which Viola follows her own path to sobriety at a young age. Viola, who has been sober since the age of 19, was inspired to write this novel, in order to showcase that it is okay to speak about addiction, and to share both the best and worst parts of individuals’ lives."

"Tracy Viola, a 2002 Master’s of Education in counseling psychology alumna, shares her journey from teenage addiction to triumphant recovery."

"With her girl-next-door face and bouncy personality, it’s hard to picture Wayne mom Tracy Viola as the duplicitous, defiant, drug-addicted teen in her new memoir, Pretty Wrecked."

"When I walked into recovery and the rooms of AA at 19 years old, I had no idea how lucky I was. I was basically given an instruction manual for how to live a healthy life."

"[Tracy] is an absolute force of nature... If you're looking for answers, you might find more than that... You might find some empowerment and some energy... Her message is something you've got to take in."

"Tracy Viola’s... stirring debut memoir... An unflinching look into her descent into teenage drug addiction and alcohol abuse, and the subsequent twenty-seven-year journey towards sobriety."
