Curious: A Foster Mom's Discovery of an Unexpected Solution to Drugs and Addiction is a work of non-fiction penned by author Christina Dent in the social issues, personal narrative, and inspirational writing subgenres. It is best suited to the general adult reading audience. In this incredible narrative, the author recounts her transformative journey sparked by an encounter with the mother of her foster son. Inquisitive about better approaches to drug-related issues amid widespread addiction and accessibility, Christina embarks on a quest for solutions. Her story unveils unexpected insights and encounters, culminating in a vision for mitigating harm from drugs, healing families, and enhancing public safety through unconventional means.

Author Christina Dent has crafted a thought-provoking book that delves into a heartfelt and unanticipated journey toward reimagining responses to drug addiction. Her narrative, coupled with insightful research and encounters, challenges preconceptions about conventional approaches to drug policy, and I was impressed with the balance between the clarity of discussions on policy versus the emotive components of her personal journey. Her evolution from a ministry leader to a TEDx speaker advocating for radical shifts in drug policy exemplifies the power of open-minded inquiry and is nothing short of incredible. The book serves as both a memoir and a call to action, inviting readers to join Christina in exploring innovative solutions to a pressing societal issue, urging us all to embrace curiosity in pursuit of a safer and more compassionate approach to drug policy. Overall, I would not hesitate to recommend Curious to fans of powerful social issues writing everywhere.
