Overview
An edgy and intimate glimpse at what one girl will do just to be the life of the party.

Before, I was never the life of the party. I was the reliable one. The one no one had to worry about. The one no one had to think about. I was the one that everyone could ignore.

Until that night, when everything changed and I finally became someone. Someone special. Someone memorable. Someone Carson might actually care about...

But the cost of being someone is more than anyone can imagine. For every moment, there's a price to pay. For every party. For every choice made. For every kiss.

Living a life of pure ecstasy might be no different from not living at all.

This diary-style novel offers a straightforward cautionary tale about the drug Ecstasy. The unnamed 17-year-old narrator, “an average-looking band geek with mousy, frizzy hair the color of dishwater,” feels invisible and awkward both at school and at home. She’s thrilled when the band is invited to participate in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City, but her mother is more impressed that the narrator’s younger sister, a sophomore, has been invited to prom by the school quarterback. Sick of being stuck in the shadows, the narrator is seduced by the prospect of “pure bliss” by taking Ecstasy offered by her friends. She only plans on trying the drug once, but she falls in love with the feeling of losing her inhibitions and being lifted out of her normal life. Soon she’s engaging in other high-risk behavior and can’t enjoy anything, even her new boyfriend, while sober. While the plot is predictable, it’s a realistic look at how easily one can be lured into drug use, and most readers will be pulled through the story by the candidness of the narration. Ages 14–up. (June)
