Nic Sheff is a columnist for The Fix and the author of two memoirs about his struggles with addiction, the New York Times bestselling Tweak: Growing Up on Methamphetamines and We All Fall Down. He is also a writer for the hit TV series The Killing. Nic lives in Los Angeles, California.

In his first novel, memoirist Sheff (Tweak) provides an insightful perspective on one teen’s struggle with mental illness, including the challenges of finding the right medications to treat his condition. Sheff’s spare writing style… creates a mood of isolation and desperation that permeates the story.
