This book is actually a REALLY good book. Its about, how drugs have affected peoples lives , indirectly and directly some of the stories are pretty rough. This book has 10 different stories, all involving drugs or alcohol. They are all teens or young adults and some of the stories are really touching. I encourage you to read this book because it is very interesting and a great read. Deborah Ellis was very clever to write a book like this. But i wonder where she has gotten the stories... and she has written them in such depth. Maybe Other people have written the stories and she put them in one book after editing them. Either way this book is a great read it teaches you alot about drugs in a way you wouldn't even realize you were learning anything at all. It is a short read i probably finished it in about 5 hours. So if you read this book let me know what you think about it.
