Emily Lloyd said:
I must've read this 20 times since I first discovered it in 5th grade. It covers a 13-yr-old's descent into heroin addiction from the p.o.v.s of the boy, his mother, his teachers, his former best friend, his dealer, and his stepfather--each chapter written in each character's own (seemingly effortlessly captured) voice. An absolute classic. Childress is masterful.
