Description
""Reminiscent of . . . S. E. Hinton. Very close to perfect."--"The Philadelphia Inquirer
Cynnie can take care of herself--and more importantly, she can take care of her little brother, Bill. So it doesn't matter that her mom is drunk all the time. Cynnie's got her own life. Cynnie's the one Bill loves more than anyone. Cynnie's the real mother in the house. And if there's one thing she knows for sure, it's that she'll never, ever sink as low as her mother. But when things start to fall apart, Cynnie needs a way to dull the pain. Never say never.
This unflinching look at the power of addiction is the story of one girl's fall into darkness--and the strength, trust, and forgiveness it takes to climb back out again.
