Third Wheel by R Becker
There was so much I loved about this book, and nothing with which I could find fault. A perfectly balanced story with characters so real you could reach and touch them, and a captivating story line perfect for its intended audience. There was no holding back in this tale of young people tempted into a world of drugs and crime, only to find themselves way out of their depth. In particular, I loved the ending and how the author, without undue sentiment, without exaggeration, brings the story to a satisfactory, realistic and utterly convincing conclusion. The whole tale is told in sparse and captivating prose and with authentic dialogue. Yep, I loved this book. I wholeheartedly recommend it.
