Sixteen-year-old Gordie Jessup is a good kid but he''s living a nightmare. His eighteen-year-old brother Chase''s two-year addiction to crystal meth has left their family emotionally and financially drained. And just when Gordie thinks he can no longer stand the manipulating, the lying and the stealing, things get even worse. Chase is arrested for aggravated assault, released on bail and sent home to his family. But his dealers are after him and Chase appeals to Gordie for help. Gordie, disgusted with his brother and fully aware that it''s a gamble, risks everything he has in the hope of bringing his family some peace.

Read from the Book

It''s around three o''clock when I hear the jingle of the bell attached to the door. I am moving boxes in the storeroom. Wiping my hands on my jeans, I walk through the doorway to the front of the store. At first, I think I''m seeing things. A ghost is coming toward the counter. It''s running toward me: a skeleton covered in jaundiced skin. Quick and spastic, it has started talking before I realize it''s my brother. Still, I can''t stop staring at this weird and jerky marionette. There are deep hollows where his cheeks used to be and his arms-dangling from the sleeves of his T-shirt-are freakishly thin. A ripe odor makes me take a step back when he comes up close.
