Based on a real-life event and written in verse, this novel relates the disturbing story of one girl's descent into addiction.
From the Publisher:
Gifted Kristina Georgia Snow takes a harrowing journey through the nightmare of drug addiction, in a book based on actual events. Original.
Annotation:
Kristina Georgia Snow had everything going for her before she discovered the seductive world of "the monster." On a visit to her negligent, remote father, she snorts crank and enters "a high velocity rush to madness" that doesn't seem to have an end in sight. Kristina is gone, and tough-talking, risk-everything Bree takes her place, changing the whole course of her young life through an addiction more destructive then she ever knew was possible. An intense, harrowing drama written in verse.

Praise

Kirkus online
"Powerful and unsettling." 10/01/2004

Publishers Weekly Annex
"Readers will appreciate the creative use of form here (some poems...are written in two columns that can be read separately or together), and although the author is definitely on a mission, she creates a world nearly as consuming and disturbing as the titular drug." 11/01/2004
