I just got a book by Catherine Ryan Hyde called THE YEAR OF MY MIRACULOUS 
REAPPEARANCE which is about a girl with an alcoholic mother and a Down Syndrome 
younger brother.  Cynnie ends up getting drunk and driving / has an accident that 
is pivotal in her life.  She is ordered by the court to go to A.A. and the book 
follows her recovery and journey into sobriety.  

It would be a good addition to a HS library.
