Jane is a magnet. A magnet for addicts. First, there was her mother, a constant disappointment whose penchant for drugs left Jane and her four-year-old sister, Lizzie, in foster care. Now, relocated with her fractured family to the Middle of Nowhere, Ohio, Jane is learning that the too-good-to-be-true boy she’s fallen for has a drug problem of his own.
Jane tries to make peace with Landon’s drug use, even though she knows she’ll never really be able to trust her boyfriend or let her guard down again. Is there anyone she can rely on, or is she doomed to be a loner, looking out for her little sister while keeping her feelings locked inside?
Opiate Jane is a moving portrait of a girl who simply wants to know that she means more to the people she loves than their addictions do.
A timely piece of fiction, Opiate Jane is rooted in the author’s own experiences with addicted loved ones.
“Baker’s debut novel is an honest yet heartbreaking portrayal of life with an addict, validated by the author’s own background in counseling. Teens will identify and empathize with the strong female character.”
“Wow! This book captures your attention and your heart. An emotional rollercoaster!”
“This story shows that love can save and bring others together in a way that can help them to surmount some of the horrors of addiction. … This story [is] uplifting even in the darkest moments.”
