    Okay so I'm really into books like "Candy" by Kevin Brooks, "Crank" by Ellen Hopkins, "Tweak" by Nic Sheff. So if anyone knows any other books like these or that involve some sort of drug use/drama, please let me know =]

    Only one that comes to mind is Philip K. Dick's A Scanner Darkly.

    You could try A Million Little Pieces, a memoir by James Frey. He says its a "memoir" but some people have debunked it as merely fiction. If you wanna try fiction than maybe Sarah and/or The Heart Is Deceitful Above All Things by JT LeRoy.

    I've never read those books you mentioned, but the thread title brought to mind The Basketball Diaries by Jim Carroll and Naked Lunch by William S. Burroughs
