Luke told Hannah he and Jess were going to have the most awesome life together. Jess never went anywhere without Luke. Jess felt it was true love just like her parents. Jess and Luke have been together for six months. It was a masquerade New Years party. Jess had went on a dare to get a plastic snowman off a pizza delivery car and they had just returned. Jess and Scarlet were best friends. Than Jess found out Luke was cheating on her with Scarlet. Sam Cooper/Coop was playing a video game- he was Jess’s ex- and than his best friend Jag came in and said he wanted to spend time with his best mate but than coo noticed they were out of beer but it was 11:20 on New Years Eve. Last year Coop had done a crash and dash to steal alcohol from a party and Jess had called the cops on him. Neither had talked to the other since. Jess went to leave Scarlets when she started downstairs and realized there was a fire she tried to get back up the stairs to at least tell Scarlet and Luke to get out of the house but the crush of the panicked kids carried Jess outside. She looked up to Scarlet’s window and saw too people still in her room trapped there. Coop remembered how happy he had been with Jess last year. He hadn’t been with anyone else since. Coop had gone through the cemetery to get to the party he planned on crashing for alcohol but also check on his sister. Than Coop saw a figure in black he knew he had to hurry and decide which way to try to get away but but the first blow hit him above the ear and he went down. Than a second blow came and so did total darkness. When Coop came too he had been in a car’s boot than Leon was the guy opening up the trunk and he beat Coop as he tried to get away Leon found the drug Nostalgex or N in Coop’s backpack and Leon said this was his territory and the only way Coop could get away was to take five hundred pills of N and sell them and have the first part of the payment- a grand the next night. If not Leon threatened to kill his twin sister Amy. Coop’s father had been a drug dealer and Coop believed Leon’s father set his dad up. Now Coop’s mom and dad were in prison for a long time. Luke and Scarlett get rescued from her house and Luke was asking for Jess and Jess went in goes to his room. She tells him they are through and than he asks if she has the pills still in his pocket and to leave his coat there with them but Jess just turns and walks away from him. She goes through the hospital and sees Coop and than the baggie brags and the red pills fall to the floor she goes to pick them up and Coop helps her than notices cops coming toward them and they leave together after they got the pills. The cops do chase them but Jess and Coop get away. Jess tells Coop about the pills and Luke was dealing them and he was dealing for Leon. Than Coops tells her that is who messed up his face. Than she remembered the bag of pills that fell out at Scarlet’s and her fingerprints were on them she was determined to go back and make sure the pills weren’t still there and Coop goes with her. Leon had been controlled for the past two years by Whiteface as he told Coop. He had evidence that would put Leon in prison for the rest of his life. Leon had killed his father when on N as his father abused even knocked out Leon’s two front teeth. He had dropped the gun and seen someone standing, watching him. So Leon did what she was told.
I read this book in one setting but lost some sleep doing it. But I just didn’t want to put it down as I wanted to see what was going to happen next. This book had: suspense, drug dealers, drama, intrigue, murder, greed, and a lot more. It was a great read. The only thing I would have liked done different was the end but it did definitely fit this book. This shows how much greed can take over and mess with your life up. Also how dangerous dealing drugs as well as taking them can be. Also I felt a lot of this was very realistic as Far as I am concerned. I would have like to rate this 4.5. I liked the characters of this book and the ins and outs of this book and I recommend this.
