How realistic was the characterization? The characters were all basically the same. Addict who lied and stole to support their habits.
How does the setting figure into the book? Settings were all the same. Inmates being interviewed while in prison for crimes committed.
What are some of the book's themes? Drugs, destroyed lives, rehab. If the this book is polished, it would make a fantastic reading guide for high school students.
Disclosure: I received a review copy of this book from the author.
