Cracked by K.M. Walton

Victor and Bull are enemies. Victor is tired of always being beaten up by Bull and is also tired of his parents either ignoring him or being disappointed in him. When his parents leave him behind when they travel to Europe, he takes a bunch of his mother's pills.

Bull also has a miserable home life. His mother and grandfather are both drunks and abusive to him. Bull takes out his frustrations on Victor and has been a bully since elementary school.

Bull is sick and tired of his life and steals a gun from his grandfather's drawer.

I can't give away the story line, but can tell you that Victor and Bull end up in the same psych ward - in fact they are roommates and must attend the same group sessions.

Told in alternate voices, this book will have you very upset, but also cheering for both Victor and Bull as they each try overcome the many obstacles in their path to recovery.
