✏Getting Wrecked Book Summary : Getting Wrecked provides a rich ethnographic account of women battling addiction as they cycle through jail, prison, and community treatment programs in Massachusetts. As incarceration has become a predominant American social policy for managing the problem of drug use, including the opioid epidemic, this book examines how prisons and jails have attempted concurrent programs of punishment and treatment to deal with inmates struggling with a diagnosis of substance use disorder. An addiction physician and medical anthropologist, Kimberly Sue powerfully illustrates the impacts of incarceration on women’s lives as they seek well-being and better health while confronting lives marked by structural violence, gender inequity, and ongoing trauma.

When forced to work together, they discover they have more in common than they ever imagined... Cast Away meets The Breakfast Club in this fun read from a New York Times bestselling author. ~BookBub Content Warning: Contains some foul language and non-explicit sex scenes between older teens. May not be appropriate for younger, middle-grade teens. HERE’S WHAT READERS ARE SAYING ABOUT WRECKED: "AMAZING, AMAZING, AMAZING! I'm not sure how to begin this review and remain professional... so I'll just be honest. I FUDGING loved this book! (SOOO SOOO MUCH!) It was fantastic!=)..." ~ Nancy Figueroa, Tumbling Books, book blog “A Fun Debut Novel! My favorite part of the book was their time on the island. The character dynamics were well done, and Casey clearly put a lot of thought into what they would need to do to survive, not just physically but emotionally. This was a fun book and a promising debut novel..." ~ Ally Arendt, Word Vagabond “Fun read! I am a big fan of young adult books, this is one of my favorites. I have actually re read this book multiple times.” ~ Hipsterduck, Amazon Reviewer “This book, for lack of a better word, was amazing. From the character intros, to the last page, I was intrigued. Elle clearly understood teens, because all of their motivations and goals were believable; even the way in which they became stranded was believable. I LOVED EVERY aspect of this book. I definitely recommend it, a must-read.” ~ Brandon, Goodreads Reviewer A note about the series: I pretty much grew up on the East Coast of Florida, so I went to the beach a lot, and whenever I did, I was always looking out at the water wondering … “What if…?” What if I were stranded out on a boat somewhere, in shark-infested waters, and then washed up on a beach of a deserted island… How would I survive? For probably 30 years or more, I contemplated these questions every time I went to the beach or thought about the water, so I had a LOT of time to think about the details. This book was inside my head, in the making, for a really long time. That’s why it’s the first book I wrote, because it was finally time to get it out of my head and onto paper (or I should say, into my computer). When I found out about self-publishing for the Kindle, I thought, “What the heck? Maybe someone will like it as much as I do.” Now, several years later, with over 40 books written and a few spots on the New York Times and USA Today bestseller lists, I can say that it was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. It literally changed my life. I’m really glad that I spent so much time daydreaming while I was at the beach, and I’m even happier that I took a chance on this story and shared it with the world. **SEQUEL ALERT** This book was originally written without plans for a sequel. But so many readers asked for one, it was done. Published on December 31, 2012, RECKLESS picks up where WRECKED left off.

You DO NOT need to read any other books in The Forever Series before enjoying this one. “There would be no happy ending for us. He was too damaged. I was too broken.” Two years ago, Lorrie’s mother was murdered. But that wasn’t the end of it. Reeling from the tragedy, Lorrie’s father spiraled into alcohol, depression, and finally suicide. The two most important people in Lorrie’s life are both gone but she’s still alive. Trying to recover from the tragedy, Lorrie returns to campus, ready to pick up the pieces of her life. All Lorrie wants is to get back to “normal.” Then she meets Hunter. The man, the legend, “The Hammer.” Hunter is a cage fighter who takes on every fight like he’s got nothing to lose. His life is a tangled mess of girls, booze, and fist fights. And while it may seem like he’s got a devil-may-care attitude, he’s fighting a private cage-match with a monster he can’t defeat. Lorrie knows that Hunter is exactly the type of guy she should stay away from, especially in her fragile state, but Hunter has other ideas. As Hunter and Lorrie grow closer together, will they be able to overcome their pain and heal each other? Or will they both end up wrecked? ______________________________ Reading Order: The Forever series currently follows three different couples.

✏Offending Girls Book Summary : At the dawn of the twenty-first century, panic about girls’ offending in Britain reached fever pitch. No longer sugar and spice, a ‘new breed’ of girl, the hedonistic, violent, binge-drinking ‘ladette’, was reported to have emerged. At the same time, the number of young women entering the youth justice system, including youth custody, increased dramatically. Offending Girls challenges simplistic and demonising popular representations of 'bad' girls and examines what exactly is new about the ‘new’ offending girl. In the light of enormous social and cultural changes affecting girls’ lives, and expectations of them, since previous British research in this area, the book investigates whether popular stereotypes problematising female youthful behaviour resonate with the accounts of criminalised young women themselves, and to what extent they have infiltrated professional youth justice discourse. Through the lens of original detailed qualitative research in two Youth Offending Teams and a Secure Training Centre – the first study of its kind since the 'modernisation' of the youth justice system over a decade ago – Offending Girls questions whether the ‘new’ youth justice system is delivering justice for girls and young women. It also contends that the panic about an ‘unprecedented crime wave’ amongst girls is not supported by robust evidence, but that the interventionist thrust which characterises contemporary youth justice has had a particularly pernicious impact on girls. It will be key reading for students and academics working in the areas of criminology, criminal and youth justice, education, gender studies, youth studies, social work, sociology and social policy, as well as youth and criminal justice practitioners and policy-makers.
