I'm a 32 year old mom of two who loves to read (obviously)! I'll read just about anything - if it sounds interesting, it makes it's way to my to-read pile!

How My Summer Went Up in Flames
Jennifer Salvato Doktorski
The Cuckoo's Calling
Robert Galbraith
Smack - Melvin Burgess This book was interesting in that it told the story from the point of view of different characters - most of whom were addicted to heroine. They led a hard life, having to live on the streets, and the girls eventually started "on the game" to feed their addiction.

But I think the same subject was approached better by other authors, especially "Crank" and "Glass" by Ellen Hopkins. I realize that they are written about another drug, they're set in the US, they're a more current era...but the basic plot was the same.

Still a decent book, but if you're wanting to read about the hard truth of drug addiction in a fictional book, then there are better books.
