Jackson knows how to get what he wants.

Whether it's sweet-talking his friends into buying lunch or convincing teachers to give him extensions, he feels entitled to take whatever he wants—even a day off school or a new pair of shoes. Now he's set his sights on Abby, a troubled girl fresh out of juvie who only has eyes for Bryce, the go-to dealer of a dangerous new drug called kryptonite.

"The book maintains a nice pace and the writing is lively."
Atlantic Books Today
"Kryptonite is a fun little read, much like sitting down to an edgy and gripping episode of Riverdale."
