All Sam ever talked about was making a good life for her and Dinah – her poor cat who had diabetes.

It’s a sad story but it’s reality. P And wow, I’m glad I started using a darker purple. I myself, have read it about times. Jun 29, Miatuzlic rated it it was amazing. Well, I did, all right.

I also thought it was pointless for Sam’s mother and Reed to be introduced because they didn’t really have anything to do with the book. They were just random events added. This is probably the best book I’ve ever read.

She called it her magic potion and bragged about how good it made her feel, how it gave her confidence and made her lose weight and helped her sleep if she took the right dose.

And because she has no confidence, even though she’s 5’10 and weighsshe starts doing heroin.

It was painful to read but I finished it in a sitting. The entire thing takes less than pages. I felt the prick of the needle, but only for a second, because this great glvoach of warmth quickly followed, encompassing my whole body from my toes right up to the top hair on my head.


I will admit at times some of the characters can grate your nerves.

I guess thats a good way to get the story to be acurate, but it’s really glvoach a stupid, stupid idea. I really felt like i was her. The big idea of this book is that the easy way out of a tough situation isn’t always going to be the solution to last you a lifetime.

Sep 07, Ashley rated it it was amazing Shelves: She had such a kind, gentle soul and alls she wanted in life was a nice home her and her beloved cat could share. So Beatuy don’t sound so picky, I guess. To all of you who believe you may be interested in reading it, I lnida hope I have pushed you over to the -DEF. The reason I gave this book 4 stars instead of 5 at certain points I didn’t uite understand what was going on.


Laina March 13, at 5: I think books like this should be available for teens, it’s a little smack in the face reality of the “hey kids don’t do drugs” slogan. I won’t be putting this one on the shelves, and I can only hope my used bookstore will be dumb enough to buy it off my hands. Thanks for telling us about the problem. I had my ljnda, but he turned out to be the father figure that Sam never had.

One thing leads to another and next thing you Beauty Queen, Beauty Queen, Beauty Queen, my goodness was this an amazing book. I have remembered it since then for the last years. I really connected with this book because someone in my family went through something very similar to this. This book may be tragic and kind of scary if you are young, but it is a good thing to read to make your child never consider doing drugs.
