The Bodies We Wear

The Bodies We Wear by Jeyn Roberts, 353 pages

Faye was only eleven years old when some dealers forced her to take Heam, a drug that most people say allows them to see Heaven.  Faye nearly overdosed but survived, and she didn’t see Heaven, but Hell.  However, people like her are outcasts.  She is forced to hide her secret every day and has had to fight the craving for more for six years.  Her one plan is to kill the people who did this to her, for revenge, both for her, and for her friend, Christian, who died that night.  Recently, Faye has met a boy who seems to like her.  He looks a lot like Christian would have, if he had lived, and he knows things about Faye that he shouldn’t, including her plan for revenge.  This was a really good book.  It was pretty strange, but I think a lot of teens that like magical reality will want to read it.
