In this gritty, heart-wrenching novel, prose and verse mix to explores themes of disability, pain, belonging, loss, addiction, and friendship

Everything was fine before. When Eve and Lidia could hide their physical differences inside goofy Burger Hut costumes. When Lidia shook Eve up and Eve made Lidia laugh. When Lidia was there.
Everything is different now. Cut open . . . rearranged . . . stapled shut, Eve is left alone to recover in a world of pain and a body she no longer recognizes. Her only companions being a bottle of Roxanol and an infuriating (but cute) neighbor, Eve strikes up a relationship–and makes a pact–with the devil. Sacrificing pieces of a place she doesn’t know to return to a place she does. What will she discover when she unravels her past? And is having Lidia back worth the price?
In verse and prose, Fix paints a riveting picture of a teen struggling to find herself and move forward with her life in a sea of opioids, regret, grief, and hope.

Reader Reviews


“Intense, unflinching…a gratifying story.”

Kirkus Reviews

"Eve’s physical and emotional experiences resonate, and the supporting cast…are vividly drawn in this hopeful contemporary novel."—Publishers Weekly

“The insidiousness of substance dependency, grief, and pain weave together in this incredibly powerful, all-consuming, captivating novel.”

The Tiny Activist

"Fix by J. Albert Mann is a haunting, heartbreaking story about addiction, internalized ableism, friendship, and what we're willing to do for the people we love. Written in a combination of achingly raw prose and verse, this book  will make you lose yourself and then find yourself again in the process. Mann crafts a lacerating picture of grief, addiction, and friendship that will stay with you long after you close the lid.”
