She likes a drink. Everyone has a problem. Hannah is seventeen. A drink makes her feel better. For a bit. But then she feels worse and the pain inside comes back.
This is the story of Hannah's addiction as seen by the people around her - her mum, her little sister, her best friend, her best friend's mother, her mum's boyfriend... Powerful and passionate, their voices shed a sometimes shocking, sometimes tender light on a life veering terrifyingly off course. `Campbell has taken the vilified, sprawling, drunken youths caricatured in tabloid headlines and, in one young girl, showed us the damaged human beings beneath.' The Times `This superb book is sad, terrifying and uplifting in equal measure.
Every parent, every young man or woman and anyone who "likes a drink" should read it.' Anne Robinson
