Bottled Up is the story of a teenage boy named Pip who is dealing with drug use and an alcoholic, abusive father. After Pip is almost expelled from school, he is forced to participate in counseling for his problems. However, he has to keep this a secret from his laid back mother and abusive father. Throughout the book, Pip’s relationship begins to change with his little brother, Mikey, who is an innocent, curious kid. I thought it was an excellent book because it showed the real story of what some kids have to go through without censoring any of the details. I highly advise others to read this book.
