By: Christine Howe

Paul is destroying his life, it is on a downward spiral even if he can’t see it. The drugs are taking control of his actions. His grandmother tries to give him moments of normal but he withdraws from her and sinks even deeper into bad habits. Then one night Paul does something really bad, one night he hurts the one person who cares about him, the one he thought he cared the most about. This moment sends Paul to the bottom, is there any way for him to get up from here?

This is a heart-achingly sad story of addiction. It has elements of love, betrayal, consequences and ultimately hope. It isn’t the easiest book to read because of it’s unflinching look at the depths life can go to when caught in the web of addiction. It is a short book but one that packs an emotional punch.

Ellen Hopkins – A Few Words From The Author

Ellen Hopkins – Book Trailers

Ellen Hopkins’ books deal with some intense topics, so be warned, but just because we don’t want the young people around us to be involved in these things and feel these kind of feelings doesn’t mean they won’t and aren’t. Check out a few of the trailers now, including one for her new book Perfect.
