Excellent! That is one small word that hardly describes a novel written with such heart. This is a story of a young mother who is faced with the death of her teenage son. He is not involved with drugs but his friend who was driving was, and this friend survived. The crush of pain left me breathless as I read and tried to imagine how Jenny must feel as she mourns. The description of this period in time was so intense that I had to cry along with her. Yet, Jenny must be strong because her daughter and youngest son need her. As the fog begins to clear she is given the chance to become an informant for the police and help eradicate a major drug ring in her town. These people are selling drugs to the local kids and she has been a witness to these handoffs. But the lies silence and intrigue that is entailed in helping the police turns her son and her best friend away from her. She wonders if it is worth the possibility of losing those most important to her. Is it worth the risk of losing her own life? But with strength and trepidation, Jenny moves forward with her plan. She is a master at changing her identity from doting mother to street walker looking for a fix, but many times she is so close to a degree of danger that no ordinary mother would ever experience. She must go ahead, for her dead son, her remaining two children and for all of the young people in her town.
