SPECIAL THE BOOK NOOK EXCLUSIVE OFFER: The first 500 people to purchase "Facing the Music and Living to Talk About It" will receive a limited edition 8.5x11 photograph, signed by Nick himself!

Nick Carter was only 12 years old when he rose to international fame as a member of the best-selling boy band, Backstreet Boys. While he was living the dream of young musicians everywhere in studio and on stage, there was much about his life behind the scenes that soon became a nightmare of his own making. Raised in an atmosphere of fear and neglect, Nick carried his childhood chaos with him into his career, self-sabotaging through the abuse of alcohol and drugs to the point where he — and his heart — nearly imploded. When Carter’s long road back to mental, physical, and spiritual health was interrupted by the drug-overdose death of his sister Leslie, he vowed to share all that he has learned about overcoming life’s challenges — particularly self-defeating behaviors — with others. What results is a rare memoir that combines deeply personal recollections with constructive advice to help you replace your most damaging, self-defeating behaviors with new habits to reclaim and enrich your life.  

Starting at 8:00 a.m. Pacific Standard Time (PST) on September 16, 2013, the first five hundred (500) Book Nook purchasers of Nick Carter's book "Facing the Music and Living to Talk About It," will also receive a signed photograph of Nick Carter, to be mailed separately; limited to customers in the U.S. and Canada only; limit of one photo per person.

Read an Excerpt

"My beautiful sister Leslie battled many of the same demons as me and, tragically, she didn't make it. In many ways her death was the catalyst for this book. I've written it in Leslie's memory, though I sincerely wish I could have given it to her before she died."
