Bottled Up by Jaye Murray

Sixteen-year-old Phillip (Pip) is a pot-smoking, alcohol-swigging, smart-mouthed troublemaker who resents being responsible for his six-year-old brother. Pip forgets to pick Mikey up, swears at him, threatens him, and wishes he'd go away. But he is still a better caregiver than their violent, alcoholic father or vacant, pill-popping mom. Pip is angry and withdrawn, but terrified enough when his caring principal threatens to call his dad that he agrees to attend his classes and get counseling.
