Review: Thin Ice
Thin Ice by Anthea Carson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I just finished editing this book, and wow! I really loved it! I've now done all three books in this series. This one is already available, but will be updated with the changes I've made to it soonish, I think.
If you've followed this series from the start, now might be the time to go back and start over again. I think reading all three books right in a row will be the best way to go about really understanding what this series is all about. It's about the ennui of being a teenager, it's about how even the rich and lovely kids can end up completely screwed up in the head, and it's about how drugs and alcohol, if abused, can really negatively impact your life. I certainly have never had a problem with moderate use of either thing, but if they take control of your life, if you lose track of what you're doing - blacking out, in other words - then you need to stop and take stock of things.
This is book 3 in the Oshkosh Trilogy. The earlier books are:

I plan to re-read the group of them at some point and hopefully, looking back at them again, I'll be able to rate that one.
