Thicker Than Water by Kelly Fiore
Cece (Cecelia) killed her older brother Cyrus. The police say so, her therapists say so, and so far, Cece has not contradicted them, but the truth is very, very complicated. Cyrus was a soccer star, until his accident left him addicted to pain pills. Descending deeper into his addiction, Cece finds herself growing desperate to save him, save herself, save their troubled family - but the choices she makes ultimately lead them all to a tragic place.
This is an intimate look at one family's struggle with addiction.
