"WARNING: While intended for young adults, this book does contain drug use, strong language and graphic imagery. Reader discretion is advised. "I could feel my chin falling toward my chest, my back hunching forward. My body was acting on its own, and my mind was empty, like all my memories had been erased. There was scenery behind my lids. Aqua colored water and powdery sand that extended for miles. I was never going back to coke. I wanted more heroin. And I wanted it now." In this Young Adult edition of her debut novel, Marni Mann tells the story of nineteen-year-old Nicole, who escapes her home of Bangor, Maine, to leave behind a haunting nightmare. Starting a new life in Boston, Nicole desperately seeks a fresh beginning to help erase her past. But there is something besides freedom waiting for her in the shadows--a drug that will take her independence away. Heroin. With one taste, the love that once flowed in Nicole's veins turns into cravings. Tracks mark the passing of time, and heroin's voice grows louder. It holds her hand through death and prostitution, but it's her addiction that keeps her in the darkness. When her family tries to strike a match to help light her way, Nicole must choose between a life she can hardly remember, or a love for heroin she'll never forget."-- Provided by publisher.
