#ONECHOICE – How Ten Seconds Can Change Your Life is a work of non-fiction in the social issues subgenre. It is suitable for the general reading audience and was penned by author Becky Savage, with contributions from the memories of Nick and Jack Savage. The book tells the story of two brothers who were celebrating the end of their high school careers with their classmates when they made the fatal decision to take Oxy after someone started offering it around at a party. The legacy of the brothers sends a powerful message about peer pressure, drugs, and the effect that a single decision can have.
This is one of the most powerful works of non-fiction I’ve ever read, written by a mother in the spirit of the two sons she lost to an overdose one fateful night when a single decision cost them everything. Author Becky Savage does a beautiful job in capturing the spirit of her sons Nick and Jack as she explores the events that led to them making a single, uncharacteristic choice that led to their deaths whilst still in their teens. It is aimed predominantly at educating parents and teenagers about the deadly consequences of narcotics by highlighting the fact that it only takes one bad choice in one moment to have life-changing consequences. Overall, #ONECHOICE never shies away from the harsh reality of drugs, peer pressure, or grief, but it does find a successful approach to the discussion by focusing on non-judgmental education for young people who find themselves in a similar situation to Nick and Jack and, in doing so, I believe that in the right hands this book could help save lives.
