ON A REVIEW SITE:
I am completely taken off guard by how much I loved this book! I wasn’t sure if I was going to like reading about a teenager. Having a pre-teen myself I figured it was going to be more than annoying.
Never have I been happier to be proven wrong! The story and the characters drew me right in.
Steph is a 10th grader who is perfect. Only she isn’t. Her parents put so much pressure on her that eventually she has no other option but to “turn herself off” by using pills.
Things start to spiral out of control when her drug connection disappears from school before her final order can come through.
Will her friends and family be able to help her or is she doomed to lead a life dependent on the *Little White Pills*.
I loved Steph. I felt like she was a real person. Her struggles are something I think a lot of teenagers will be able to relate too.
Or, if you are like me, you will enjoy it as an adult!
Rachel was another one of my favorite characters and I just realized that there is a whole book on her.
And it is FREE as I write this post – woot! So, go snatch it up and read them both. I know I will be!
