Roxy, by Neal and Jarrod Shusterman was a treat to read. As someone that has seen first-hand what happens to a person struggling with addiction, this book really hit home. The story follows Isaac and his sister Ivy as they are faced with addiction and dance ever closer to an edge of no return. The story was inspiring and humbling. I am a fan of Neal and Jarrod Shusterman and they did not disappoint. Well done gentlemen.
Here is the summary from Amazon and the link to the book below:
“The victim of the bet between two manufactured gods: the seductive and lethal Roxy (Oxycontin), who is at the top of her game, and the smart, high-achieving Addison (Adderall), who is tired of being the helpful one, and longs for a more dangerous, less wholesome image. The wager—a contest to see who can bring their mark to “the Party” first—is a race to the bottom of a rave that has raged since the beginning of time. And you are only human, dazzled by the lights and music. Drawn by what the drugs offer—tempted to take that step past helpful to harmful…and the troubled places that lie beyond.
But there are two I. Rameys—Isaac, a soccer player thrown into Roxy’s orbit by a bad fall and a bad doctor and Ivy, his older sister, whose increasing frustration with her untreated ADHD leads her to renew her acquaintance with Addy.”
