Summary

Cheryl's childhood is full of love. Raised on the farm and the youngest of ten siblings, she worships God every Sunday and basks under the praise of her mother. But she has a tendency to look at the other side of life and wonder what it's like. the popular crowd is so glamorous and full of fun. Could their way of living be better than hers? When Cheryl moves into her first apartment, things begin to fall apart. No longer under the protection of her mother, she is independent now-and that means she is in charge of making her own decisions. She starts hanging out with old schoolmates. When she realizes they are doing drugs, she throws caution to the wind and decides to try them. But drug addiction is not a pretty thing. Cheryl's life spirals out of control as she becomes not only a user, but a dealer. She thinks she can get herself out of this mess alone, yet those years of Sunday school and church worship tell her she needs to turn to the Lord. Listening to that small voice proves more difficult than she imagined, however, and her partying lifestyle may just lead her in the opposite direction.

Excerpts

Cheryl rushed to her door on trembling knees, and as she entered she lay back against the door and with shaky hands locked it behind her. Her head was spinning and reeling as Penny's words echoed in her head: "You OD'ed, you OD'ed, you OD'ed." Cheryl stumbled to her bedroom and started tearing off her wet clothes as her hands clumsily fumbled with her buttons and zipper; she dropped her clothes in a pile on the floor by her feet. She quickly snatched up the warm cotton robe that lay draped at the end of her bed and wrapped it around her nude but still damp body. By this time she was shivering uncontrollably. She then collapsed outstretched on her bed, pulling the bedcovers up and clenching them around her neck. Her mind began to replay the wonderful day that she had before she made the choice that could have ended her life. the tension in the grip of her hands lessened as she slowly released the bedcovers. Aimlessly, Cheryl grabbed the pillow next to her and squeezed it close as the tears began to flow, and flow, nonstop, till her head began to spin. As the darkness of a horrid sleepiness started to overcome her, she began to drift. Her mind went back, way, way back. As far back as memory would allow.
