Not great. Not bad. I stopped halfway through, then picked it up again and finished. Ambivalent about the story and wasn't really sure what the point was.

It's strange that I didn't like it as I really enjoyed Dermaphoria by Craig Clevenger which deals with an addict too.

I liked the authors style of writing, but I didn't care for the story to much itself. It was a story more about drug addiction and how it ruined this families life. Some parts drug on that I don't think needed to. All in all it was interesting.
