Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Sometimes maybe you need an experience. The experience can be a person or it can be a drug. The experience opens a door that was there all the time but you never saw it. Or maybe it blasts you into outer space.

Synopsis:

Few books in recent years have caused as much of a sensation as Smack. This story of two teenage runaways who descend into heroin addiction has achieved bestseller status on both sides of the Atlantic. In its smartly designed mass-market package, Smack will reach an enthusiastic new wave of readers.

Nichole Jefferson, May 3, 2010 (view all comments by Nichole Jefferson)
This book i read after reading go ask Alice. I felt as if i got sucked into the world of each and every character. Its a vivid drug experience. There are many kids and teens alike in the world that go through this. Iv requested this book to my sister and she enjoyed it alot. I think this is definatly a must have must read book. It tells alot about street life for teens, and the drug use that they get sucked into.

I read this book for the first time when I was about 14. It is rather raw in some aspects, obviously, it is about heroin. A fantastic dose of a raw world. After finishing this book, I read Go Ask Alice, which was along the same lines in some ways, but also a fantastic dose of craziness.
