Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 7 Up-- A first-person account of a white, middle-class young adult who is fighting cocaine addiction. Meg's trouble started after the treatment for a head injury included strong prescription drugs that caused personality changes. She went on to problems with her family, sexual promiscuity, embezzling money, and dealing drugs. Her parents tried to help, but it wasn't until Meg sought aid through a rehabilitation program and a follow-up counseling connection that she began to change. This could be the story of any one of the thousands of teens who think that drugs will never touch them. In a heartfelt and affecting way, Meg shows others that they can. This easy-to-read format will appeal to many reading levels, and the personable account is believable so that the message of addiction striking at every level of society will come across. The black-and-white photographs are posed but complement the text rather than detract from it. --Kathryn Havris, Mesa Public Library, AZ
