On Shelves Now: DOPE SICK by Walter Dean Myers

208 p.
Publisher: Amistad
Ages: 14 and up

A drug deal goes south and a cop has been shot. Lil J's on the run. And he's starting to get dope sick. He'd do anything to change the last twenty-four hours, and when he stumbles into an abandoned building, it actually might be possible. . .

Elements of magical realism intensify this harrowing story about drug use, violence, perceptions of reality, and second chances.
