Beneath a Meth Moon: A trip to the dark side

9780606305662_p0_v1_s260x420When Laurel, 14, falls under the spell of T-bone, her new school’s star basketball player, she also falls under the influence of Meth, and becomes an addict almost immediately. Moon, as she calls it, takes the sadness away, and Laurel has a lot of that: she’s just lost her mother and grandmother to Hurricane Katrina. Laurel’s father, baby brother and good friend Kaylee never give up on Laurel, but it’s a street painter named Moses who ends up saving her life. This book is a page turner, and will take readers on a ride as it goes back and forth in time.
