'It was a love story. Me, Gemma and junk. I thought it was going to last forever...'

Tar loves Gemma, but Gemma doesn't want to be tied down. She wants to fly.
But no one can fly forever. One day, finally, you have to come down.

Melvin Burgess' most ambitious and complex novel is a vivid depiction of a group of teenagers in the grip of addiction.

Told from multiple viewpoints, Junk is a powerful, unflinching novel about heroin. Once you take a hit, you will never be the same again.

Not suitable for younger readers: Ages 16+
