Faith Navarro has landed a scholarship to an arts high school for violin. But her struggles at home threaten to take away everything she’s ever worked for. Her older sister’s drug addiction has caused Faith to miss school one too many times. Her school offers her one more chance to keep her scholarship—enrollment in a teen support group called the Dragons Club. The last thing Faith wants to do is talk to other teens about her sister’s addiction and how it affects her, but soon she forms a deep connection to the other members and finds herself, and her music, coming alive again. However, the teens are all in this club for a reason, and tragedies seem inevitable. As her sister’s addiction escalates, Faith has to choose between her sister and the life she’s built for herself.
“Sharp, tender, carefully crafted; highly recommended for both strong and striving readers.” —Kirkus, STARRED REVIEW
