"Hold Me Close, Let Me Go"

When Adair Lara’s daughter Morgan turned 13, she was transformed, seemingly overnight, from a sweet, loving child into an insolent, secretive teenager who would neither listen nor take direction. For the next five years, Lara, her son Patrick, her ex-husband Jim and her new husband Bill, shared a wild roller coaster ride in which Morgan incarnated the chaos principle in torn jeans and dyed hair. Lara has published a memoir, "Hold Me Close, Let Me Go" (Broadway Book), which recounts how mother, daughter, and family survived.
