Ages 12 And Up

 

A young adult adaptation of the explosive book about the crisis-level national opiate epidemic.

In 1929, in the blue-collar city of Portsmouth, Ohio, a company built a swimming pool the size of a football field; named Dreamland, it became the vital center of the community.

 

Now, addiction has devastated Portsmouth, as it has hundreds of small rural towns and suburbs across America. How that happened is the story of Dreamland.

 

Quinones explains how the rise of the prescription drug OxyContin, a miraculous and addictive painkiller pushed by pharmaceutical companies, paralleled the influx of black tar heroin--cheap, potent, and originating from one small county in Mexico.


Featuring updated information, additional reporting on affected teens, and interstitial photographs, this adaptation is the must-read book for teens looking to understand the epidemic.
