ROXY, by Neal Shusterman and Jarrod Shusterman, is one story told in two parts. Isaac and Ivy Ramey are siblings in high school trying to negotiate what every teenager does: figuring out how to manage all of the grown up responsibilities that comes with age but still wanting to live the carefree life of a child. Their struggles lead them down the road to addiction. Their journey is one part of the story and the second part is told from the point of view of the drugs that Isaac and Ivy find to help them work through their problems. The book gives each drug a personality, as if each is a deity. Those deities naturally have a perpetual desire to "help" people and becomes so attached that people no longer see a life without them.
The authors intertwine Isaac and Ivy's life and the drug's lives in unique ways that are quite clever and interesting. They provide histories of many drugs, sometimes with breaks in the story called "interludes", and describe the drugs as if they have been living beings since their invention and have feelings and thoughts on how they have been used over the course of time. Isaac and Ivy's journey through the book felt real and grounded and those readers who have experienced addiction challenges can relate to the Ramey siblings. The supporting cast is also well written, reflecting a variety of opinions and approaches to drugs and addiction that mirror real life. The finale of the book is a powerful read and once finished will leave the reader emotionally spent. Being someone who has overcome addiction, I had a hard time connecting with how each drug works in each person and I think that there were certain generalities that were expressed that don't hold true. Drugs work in different ways in each person and the purpose and effect of each drug is widely varied.
A moving odyssey of a novel, ROXY is not the kind of book I will soon forget. For someone new and/or unfamiliar to drugs and addiction, like a young adult, I think this book will be eye-opening and will leave a strong impression. No matter who you are, though, it is a good read.
Thank you to Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers, Neal Shusterman and Jarrod Shusterman, and Netgalley for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review! ( )

This ambitious undertaking attempts to portray various drugs as powerful gods, complete with distinct personalities, who are attempting to gain influence over the human young adults. Readers will have no doubt from the beginning who will win this conflict, and the ensuing downward spiral for the humans is a blatant cautionary tale. ( )
