This novel is a very wonderful and educational novel. I read it myself and its the type of novel you dont want to put down after you start reading it. The way the author of this book has the text just makes the reader feel part of the book. Reading this book was a wonderful experience for me. I recommend this book to young adults. Parentsmay think that it miht be too graphic and what not but it really shows the consequencs of the drug use of the main character and thats why i say its educational.
