It’s Addicting by Laura L. Smith (Birch House Press, 2015)

Obsessing over status, grades, exercise or a boyfriend could never become an addiction…could it?

This third installment of the Status Updates series finds four college sophomore roommates finally getting comfy with the routines of dorm life. But Kat, Claire, Palmer, and Hannah soon begin to feel the nagging ache of innocent addictions pulling them away from their true selves. Hang out with these four roomies to see if they can–or even want to–ditch these sneaky little hang-ups before they take over their lives.
