Demian's Thoughts: This book definitely has the silliest artwork of the series, and for this I consider it wonderful -- I laughed aloud at several of the pictures. None of this humor was intended, but it was nonetheless appreciated. The book itself is very short, but with long sections; there's not a whole lot of interaction here, though it does manage to allow the reader to make decisions for two different characters, just like the previous book. The storyline is probably the most interesting of the series, involving the filming of a movie during the main character's vacation. Since it's not just a "drugs in school" story, it feels more like a "real" gamebook with drug-related themes than a gamebook entirely about drugs. This is definitely a good thing, though it doesn't entirely save the book from its flaws.
