I really wanted to like this book. The subject matter is spot-on: teens who are affected by addiction. But this reads like a very detached, sanitized version of events, and it just didn't move me. It might appeal to those who are looking for ways to approach the subject of addiction with younger readers, but as a book for teens, in my opinion, it misses the mark.
