Publisher Description

Kevin Brooks is at the top of his YA game in this "provocative, suspenseful" (Booklist) novel. Now in a dynamic new Kevin Brooks repackaging!

When Joe meets Candy, it seems like a regular boy-meets-girl scenario. They chat over coffee, she gives him her number, and he writes her a song. But then Joe is drawn into Candy's world --- a world of drugs, violence, and desperation. As the dark truth about Candy's life emerges, Joe finds himself facing real danger at every twist and turn. Soon Joe's conflicting emotions begin to mirror Candy's, and he understands that falling in love just might be worth the struggle. This intoxicating tale of heartache, danger, and hope will enthrall teen readers.

Great book

I read part of this book in 8th grade but didn’t get to finish. I just finished reading the book for my 12th grade English class and couldn’t stop reading the book because of all the twists and events that happened in the story.

Not your typical love story

And that is not such a bad thing. Candy is a great book that keeps you on the edge of your seat the whole time. Waiting, wondering what’s going to happen next. The author does a fantastic job developing the characters and helping you understand that sometimes you can’t understand another persons thoughts. A grim view of how addiction is a problem in people’s love lives.
