Finally someone dares to shed some inside light on the real issues that people on drugs face every day, how they get there and how it affects the people that surround them. To be honest, when I first started reading Rave Girl I had no idea what to make of it. I have never read anything like it. This is a good thing.

15 year old Maya, physically and emotionally damaged throughout her growing up, left with nothing when her Mother dies of a drug overdose. With only one place to go she loses herself in partying and drugs. On a night out she stumbles upon Trey, a recreational drug user with a rough up-bringing himself, who introduces her to coke and all that comes with it. Little did they know about how dependent on it she would become. Battles with drug lords, suicidal tendencies, bring Maya and Trey dependent of each other instead of the drug. But with everything that happened during their wild nights it has caught up to them and now they run for their lives.

David Jerome gives produces such raw material in Rave Girl. The relationships are intense, the action is thrilling and the story has this realness about it which makes the story believable.It's short, not so sweet and straight to the point.

Don't know what to read next? Seriously consider giving Rave Girl a go. My expectations weren't high but let me tell you I am glad I read it. Not only did David create and deliver an amazing storyline, it also opened my eyes to the fact that thousands of people that have drug addictions and go through this type of thing every day and society barely ever hears about it.

I was once just like the girl Maya in the story. I was in the rave scene at a very young age for about 15 years. I'm still into electronic music, but I now practice a sober lifestyle. I have presonally been in the mix of music, drugs, & partying. When I read this story, I felt as though the story was relavant and comparable to the life that I once lived. What led me to the deep, dark, & vivid lifestyle was the death of my fiance in a car accident by a drunk driver. The journey that David explains with the story is brought to life & is very realistic as far as making you feel like you are a part of the party/action. Two thumbs up over here!!!
