An extremely sad, but candid and important story

A very well written story that serves as a cautionary tale for depressed, impoverished, and aimless youth. The characters are quite fleshed out for such a short narrative, and you care a lot about their arcs. The passages regarding heroin usage are very detailed, so this might be a trigger for anyone who is a former addict. As someone who has zero experience with the substance, it was still easy for me to imagine both the horror and euphoria that heroin produces. This is all thanks to Lutzke’s unflinching, vivid, and poetic imagery. He tackles this subject matter in a realistic manner, not shying away from the darkness and temporary light that is a result of hardcore drug use. This is an easy recommendation.
