Product Details


“A perplexing, thrilling whirlwind of a read… This smart, beguiling novel will usher readers into the bizarre—but reality-based—subculture of drug-trial ‘volunteers.'” —Booklist

“There’s no denying the story’s power. Raw, funny, grotesque, unsettling, and very sad.” —Kirkus Reviews

“Audie’s character is well-drawn and totally believable, immersing readers in her world and, hopefully, opening the door to an ethical discussion about current mental health issues.” —School Library Journal

“A chatty, clever narrator with a twisted sense of humor grounds the story . . . raising challenging questions about medicine, ethics, and the true cost of big breakthroughs.” —Publishers Weekly
