Come Clean

Publisher: HarperCollins

After just one night of teen drinking, American high-school student Justine Ziegler ends up in a drug rehabilitation centre with bunker-like facilities. Undergoing a punishing regime, motivated by fear and extreme peer group pressure, the 'phasers', as they are known, must endure a tough twelve-step recovery programme.

Narrated in the first-person, Come Clean is an unflinching examination of love, loss and sibling intimacy, which is both brutal and compelling. Shortlisted for the 2005 Booktrust Teenage Prize.
