Reminiscent of . . . S. E. Hinton. Very close to perfect. The Philadelphia Inquirer Cynnie can take care of herself and more importantly, she can take care of her little brother, Bill. So it doesn t matter that her mom is drunk all the time. Cynnie s got her own life. Cynnie s the one Bill loves more than anyone. Cynnie s the real mother in the house. And if there s one thing she kws for sure, it s that she ll never, ever sink as low as her mother. But when things start to fall apart, Cynnie needs a way to dull the pain. Never say never. This unflinching look at the power of addiction is the story of one girl s fall into darkness and the strength, trust, and forgiveness it takes to climb back out again.
