This is of a genre I don't normally read because it's just too close to real life's drug issues. This book is about Iggy, who with drug-addicted parents, is unfortunately expected to be nothing because of his history. But his principal, before Iggy is suspended, tells Iggy that he thinks everyone can have a purpose in life. After hearing this, Iggy is determined to set things right and return to high school. However, his friend Mo gets in trouble with a dealer, and Iggy has to make sacrifices to help him.

Iggy makes all the wrong decisions for the right reasons and the right decisions for the wrong ones. I liked Iggy--he is naive and overall a good person, but not bright enough to know that his actions can have unwanted consequences. His innocence made me cry a little.

K.L. Going can really write with the voice of a freshmen-in-high-school 16-year-old. But you can only take so many run-on sentences.
