A book that will stay with you, this is a stark look at meth addiction and how it can impact everyone around the addict.

I really liked this book, but the ending was depressing and anticlimactic...

the mom was ugghhhhh soo annoying, but Ive never been in a position where you have to choose between the law and your own son, so maybe I shouldn't be talking.

I think the main character was very calm and patient with chase. If it were me, i wouldn't have been that calm, especially if he stole my guitar i've worked months to pay for..but he was and i admire that.

it really gives us a deeper sense of what it's like living with a druggie, but i think there are books that could be better in my opinion. This one was really good, but in terms of how the book made me feel? It was lacking in the emotional aspect. I want more than just to feel sorry for Chase. I wanted some..iunno, just more emotion that the book would've made me feel for some reason. but i really, really, really enjoyed it. :)

A family is strong and fragile. What makes it so is the existence of one thing: love. Tweaked is a record of what a family must go through when one of their own is struggling with addiction. It is a remarkable tale of the negative side of love. A great read!

This was a really good read, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The author was successful in portraying Gord's feelings in a realistic way, making it very relatable to teens. Simply put, this book was a light read, but full of emotion nonetheless.

Tweaked has taught me how a deathly drugs can destroyed others life. You can whatch how a boys life can be destroyed by his brother drug addiction. Beware for this book will take you into a world with cayouse that will have you thinking before you do drugs.

An okay book. There are definitely better titles on this years White Pine list. However, what I did like about this book is its authenticity and voice. The author is a very powerful one as she is able to successfuly write a novel from the perspective of a male. I think she did this very effectively. Bravo.
