Carrie and Mae-Ling both attend an exclusive private school in Sydney, but their backgrounds couldn't be more different. Carrie enjoys the lifestyle her successful father affords her, whilst Mae-Ling is an illegal immigrant from Vietnam. Trying to establish herself in a new country, Mae-Ling's mother has high expectations of her quiet, hard-working daughter. But now that daughter is lying in hospital with a suspected ecstasy overdose. Sat in the waiting room, Carrie is faced with explaining to Mae-Ling's mother how her supposedly sweet and dutiful daughter is now fighting for her life. But Mae-Ling is not the only one hiding dark secrets. Only Carrie really knows what happened to Mae-Ling, but will she confess? This fast-paced read is dynamic and gripping, perfect for teen readers who want all the characteristics of a long novel, dealing with teenage issues and tough topics, in a strong, condensed book. From a series written by some amazing authors, this book is everything a reluctant reader would want to get them engaged. Note: this book contains some strong language, graphic scenes and/or tough topics, so is only suitable for older YA readers.

"Reading Ecstasy was extremely emotive and felt as I was reading each line, I was placing myself more and more into the characters position. I felt like it really unveiled the dark reality of drug abuse and how it can change people's lives so dramatically. I would describe it as an 'I can't get my head out of this' read. I would recommend the book to any adolescent but I also think that anyone beyond this age would still find the book equally as enjoyable to read." Sophie Dale
