Its a great book. I love the way it switched back and forth from character to character, because you could see all of the caracters different points of views on things.
Smack hits hard with a real life view of herion addiction. At first glamorizing the feeling and lifestyle associated with the drug, the novel portrays the gradual downward spiral that users go into. Gritty, real, and brutally honest, I couldn't put the book down.
