This is a memoir from a good, middle class girl growing up in Australia who gets hooked on heroin. Her life from there goes incrementally downhill until she is working 7 nights a week as a prostitute to support her and her boyfriend's habit. The book is well written and engaging, though I have to say that the endless recitation of her prostitution experiences got to be tedious. I think it would have been better to leave out some of the experiences and her thoughts about them. Trimming some pages would have made it a better book.
