One of my favorite parenting books. I reread it periodically and get new insights every time.
Kristina is the perfect student and daughter, shy, hard-working, highly motivated-until she decides to spend 10 days with her father who is alcoholic, drug addicted and lazy. There she meets Adam-and crank- and quickly becomes a different person-"Bree"-to be exact. "Bree"-who runs with the wrong crowd, gets high on anything available and will do anything....ANYTHING to get her next high. This book left me breathless! Written in verse, it is the perfect medium, as you move as quickly from perfect student to complete addict as Kristina did. Very disturbing, very realistic, totally heartbreaking. Based on the author's daughter's experience which makes it even more heartwrenching.
