Recovery Road by Blake Nelson
Not much fuss has been made about this book but I'm really excited about it, there is also the added fact that the author wrote Paranoid Park, a little known skater/mystery movie that I loved. I can't wait to hear what Madeline and Stewart watch at their weekly movie nights and I have a feeling this book won't have such a happy ending for once!
Two bad-ass teenagers fall in love in rehab. You will laugh. You will cry.
Madeline is sent away to Spring Meadows to help with a drinking and rage problem she has. It's a pretty intense place, but there is the weekly movie night in town--where Madeline meets Stewart, who's at another rehab place nearby. They fall for each other during a really crazy time in their lives. Madeline gets out and tries to get back on her feet, waiting for Stewart to join her. When he does, though, it's not the ideal recovery world Madeline dreamed of. Both of them still have serious problems. And Stewart's are only getting worse....
Recovery Road will be released March 2011 by Scholastic Press.
