Description

From the talented author that brought you the Nine Lives of Chloe King series comes a timely and thought-provoking novel inspired by the epidemic of prescription drug abuse among teens.

Thyme Gilcrest is an honors student. Thyme Gilcrest is popular. Thyme Gilcrest is on student council.

Thyme Gilcrest is a drug dealer.

Thyme Gilcrest is doing everything she can to stay afloat in her over-achieving high school. She’s broken into the academic elite—The Twenty—but barely. So when her best friend Will refuses to take his newly-prescribed Ritalin, Thyme steals it. With SATs quickly approaching, she must keep her self-diagnosed ADHD in check.

One prescription is not enough, though. And soon Thyme is trading with classmates to get the meds she “needs.” It’s addictive—not the pills, but the feeling of power that comes with the trade. Her friends come to her for advice. For “prescriptions.” And Thyme can’t help but oblige them all...

A fascinating look at a class superstar who is dealing with the stress—by dealing prescription pills.


About the Author

Tracy Lynn is a pseudonym. Liz Braswell is a real person. After the sort of introverted childhood you would expect from a writer, Liz earned a degree in Egyptology at Brown University and then promptly spent the next ten years producing video games. Finally she caved in to fate and wrote Snow, her first novel, followed by the Nine Lives of Chloe King series under her real name, because by then the assassins hunting her were all dead. Liz lives in Brooklyn with her husband, two children, and the occasional luna moth.
