This was a very graphic book. I'm not sure it's really a young adult book. Or it shouldn't be I guess is what I mean. It has a lot of language and details that I would have been shocked at if I read it when I was younger. It was also depressing in a way because I've never dealt personally with anyone who's been through any of this or anything like that. I would recommend it to anyone who was thinking of experimenting with drugs. I gave it two stars.
