Live the ultimate high. Pay the ultimate price. The shocking return to YA by the author of Smack.

A new drug is on the street. Everyone''s buzzing about it. Take the hit. Live the most intense week of your life. Then die. It''s the ultimate high at the ultimate price. Adam thinks it over. He''s poor, and doesn''t see that changing. Lizzie, his girlfriend, can''t make up her mind about sleeping with him, so he can''t get laid. His brother Jess is missing. And Manchester is in chaos, with the cops in the pockets of the dealers and with a group of homegrown terrorists, the Zealots, battling to overthrow the banks. Wouldn''t one amazing week be better than this endless misery? After Adam downs one of the Death pills, he''s about to find out.
