From the Publisher:
From acclaimed author Blake Nelson, the story of girl meets boy...in rehab.
Madeline is sent away to Spring Meadows to help with a drinking and rage problem she has. It's a pretty intense place, but there is the weekly movie night in town--where Madeline meets Stewart, who's at another rehab place nearby. They fall for each other during a really crazy time in their lives. Madeline gets out and tries to get back on her feet, waiting for Stewart to join her. When he does, though, it's not the ideal recovery world Madeline dreamed of. Both of them still have serious problems. And Stewart's are only getting worse....
After an intense stint at rehab, 16-year-old Maddie must return to real life, including high school and all the challenges involved. The only bright spot at Spring Meadow was meeting a boy named Stewart who is also coping with his own addiction issues. Dealing with her reputation as "Mad Dog Maddie" at school, friends who don't understand her desire to remain sober, and feeling all alone, Maddie hopes that things will change when Stewart gets out of rehab. However, she soon finds out that love is not the answer to all her problems. Blake Nelson is also the author of PARANOID PARK and GIRL.
