Review by: Charlie O'Brian on June 24, 2013 :
I am a parent of a 14 year old daughter. This book was recommended to me by a friend. My daughter and I read this story together and both shed tears at the ending. This book should be required reading for all our youth. Robert Batista told a great story in so few words. He is a fantastic writer.

Review by: Flinn on June 24, 2013 :
Entertaining, but pretty basic. A "don't do drugs" info-mercial, basically. It's a sad story of one person's reason why to "just say no."

Review by: glenn ford on June 19, 2013 :
This story is a poignant one and sad.It reminded me of an incident that occurred to me in my life while attending college and the end result was the same. When our youth believe that in order to have a "good time" it requires from them to experiment with chemicals that they have no idea what the final result will be.It has been a pattern that the belief is that a drug will enhance your "party experience".The protagonist as such Carmela only wanted to have a good time but at what cost. The author, Mr.Batista spins a tale of expectation and hope but shrouded in root deepened insecurity that manifest into a lifetime of horror rather than a life of great promise. our children take chances without realizing the ramifications of their actions.This is truly a cautionary tale that being who you really are and being comfortable in your own "skin" is the protection from all the ancillary 'traps" that are thrust at our children.
