Review: Dope Sick by Walter Dean Myers

Do you believe in second chances?

Lil J has hit hard times, he can’t relax and his money is low. When his friend Rico finds a way to make some quick cash, he goes along to make the deal. This deal was suppose to be easy but when the buyer turns out to be an undercover cop, everything goes wrong. He would do anything to change what happened and when he stumbles into an abandoned crack house, that might be possible.

This book was interesting, intriguing and nothing short of magical. I love the fact that you are just as puzzled by what is taking place as Lil J. The story flows perfectly. With every flashback comes another piece to the puzzle of Lil J’s life. The book does feature elements of drug use, violence and most of the story takes place in an abandoned crack house but with that lies a story showcasing the power of second chances. After reading this book, you will begin to ask yourself the question asked throughout the story, “If you could change one thing, what would it be?”
