The Hit by Melvin Burgess

Take it.  Live it.  Do it.

A new drug is out.  Everyone is talking about it.  The Hit.  A week of good life – a really good life.  Followed by death.  But still, a week like no one ever lived before.

Adam looks around him.  His parents are worn out.  His brother has gone.  And Lizzie his girlfriend is over him.  There’s got to be more to life.  If he had a week to live, what would he live for?  Actually, he’s got a list…

Live the ultimate high.  Pay the ultimate price. 
The shocking return to YA by the author of Smack.

Peer & Press Reviews

One of the few entirely essential authors in the world of young-adult fiction… THE HIT has many of the elements that make Burgess such a compelling writer.  The sex, drugs, and rock n’ roll are all there, and that distinctive Burgess prose – swaggering, intense, and exciting – thrums through it all.

Anthony McGowan, Guardian

A writer of the highest quality with exceptional powers of insight.
