Kristina continues to use meth once she gets back home and she actually ends up getting a job in order to pay for her addiction while framing it as her trying to become more responsible. As time goes on Kristina's addiction becomes harder to hide and she ends up neglecting her son in favor of meth and Trey who she thinks she's in love with. After Kristina's neglect and drug use put her son in danger her mom kicks her out when it becomes clear that Kristina isn't planning on stopping with meth and she tells her that she isn't allowed back until she is clean. Kristina ends up staying with Trey's cousin who is also a drug dealer which just makes her addiction worse and after awhile she even gets involved with dealing herself, most of the book is really just Kristina making more of the same mistakes that she made in the first book but taken up a level or two.
I overall thought that this was a really good book although I did find myself frustrated with the decisions that Kristina was making. This book is written in verse like the rest of Ellen Hopkins books and the writing style is as beautiful and insightful as it always is.
