Dirty: a Search for Answers Inside America’s Teenage Drug Epidemic

DIRTY: A Search for Answers Inside America’s Teenage Drug Epidemic By Meredith Maran (HarperSanFrancisco)

Eye-opening and compassionately delivered, Dirty is an intimate travelogue of three teens’ journey from desperate addiction toward sobriety. Maran’s story-telling is colorful and compelling, a sympathetic evocation of ecstasy, heartbreak, horror and hope. Provocatively revealing, informative and not without humor, Dirty is itself an addictive read.
