This is my first Ellen Hopkins book, and it will not be my last. I really enjoyed this novel. It is a wonderful story about the innate flaws in not just someone who is hooked on drugs, but also those who are affected by their family member's illness. Each short chapter was a glimpse into the reality of a family (or in this case, many families) torn apart by their own inner (and sometimes outer) demons. I am giving this 4 stars out of five and that is simply because even though the chapters were short, the book was a bit longer than I think it needed to be. I have Burned on my bookshelf now for a buddy read with someone, and look forward to reading it soon. 4/5 stars!
