Mia and Sophie have been best friends forever — but that’s all about to change. Experimenting with alcohol, flirting with boys, and dabbling in drugs, their lives quickly spiral out of control.

There is little currently available for young readers — and their parents — that accurately reflects both the appeal and the consequences of drug use from a teenage perspective, making this an important and valuable novel.

PRAISE FOR THE BOOK

‘The book every teenager will want to read – and every parent should read. A brutally frank look at the teenage sub-culture of drugs.’ Dr Bill Saunders

McCaffrey takes readers inside the life of the teen characters, showing why they make the decisions do… This is a gritty novel on an important subject.’ Aussie Reviews

‘Kate McCaffrey’s portrayal of the drug scene is terrifyingly accurate.’ YA Reads

‘There was also something about the way [McCaffrey] described things that made them so real, so real that I often felt like I was reading someones biography or their memoirs from their drug crazed days.’ Just Listen Book Reviews
