You don't have to. But you want to. Believe me.
Carla has just moved to London and starts at yet another new school; she is desperate to fit in. Though she makes a couple of friends, she soon meets the charismatic, good-looking Finn and their whirlwind romance begins. Carla, an A student and gifted artist, lets her schoolwork slip as she enters Finn's world - a world of partying and drugs. Friends tells her that Finn is no good - even his brother, Isaac. But Isaac has an ulterior motive, doesn't he? Is either brother right for Carla?

Drop does so much more than a preachy advert or the repetition of 'Just Say No' to fairly portray the realities of drug taking, and the consequences, in the lives of many teenagers. * The School Librarian *
A gripping coming-of-age tale. Book of the week. * New! Magazine *
Katie Everson's Drop is a book about first love, drugs, friendship and family relationships told with wit and assurance. * The Bookseller Children's Buyer's Guide *
Readers will understand Carla's motivation completely and this cautionary romance makes for compulsive reading. -- Andrea Reece * Lovereading 4 Kids *
This is an amazing story and has an excellent storyline; I would really recommend it to teenagers around 15+ [...] it is very well written and you never want to put the book down! -- Reader Review * Love Reading 4 Kids *
This is an amazing book and the best I have read in a long time. A thrilling book with lots of twists and turns. Definitely one to read! Couldn't put it down. -- Reader Review * Love Reading 4 Kids *
Drop is a wonderfully written and effortless to read debut about art, love, the desperate need to fit in and finding yourself. Katie Everson is definitely a name to watch. * So Many Books, So Little Time *
I absolutely MUST praise Katie Everson on her writing. It was probably the best thing about this book, on top of all the other amazing parts of this novel - the beautiful imagery (especially concerning butterflies) and the unique writing style really made reading this book a more profound and enthralling experience. Drop was raw, compelling, and sharp. Katie Everson's debut is beyond impressive, and there's no doubt that I'm eagerly waiting for her second book. * Confessions of a Readaholic *
The power of Drop is in its ordinariness [...] This is a very readable, realistic book with some characters the type of which are found in every school. It is honest in its dealing with teenage drug use, and the pitfalls. * Books for Keeps *
"...I really enjoyed it. The descriptions of events were very realistic and I could really visualise being in Clara's shoes. The story kicks off right away and there was no slow start, and I was immediately on Carla's downward journey. I usually read horror stories, but I could relate to this book so I'll be reading more widely now. -- Reader Review * Teen Titles *
There are parts that are harrowing and poignant as we see Carla as an ordinary teenager that describes her motives and feelings in an honest and real way. * The School Librarian *
Katie Everson has managed to encapsulate teenage angst and show how easy it could be for any 'normal' teenager to be swayed to the dark side. * Carousel *
