Finding Mr. Brightside, by Jay Clark
From the odd premise, the unrealistic freedom that these kids enjoy, and the beautiful way everything sorts out, this is a hard one to swallow. And while some lip service is paid to what should be awkward in this story (grief, guilt, and impact of drug abuse), not much is developed. The story isn't too big into consequences or repercussions. In fact, it isn't really too much into detail. The characters are interesting and the premise has potential, but little is developed.
