Product description


"Raw, brutal and shocking. Move over, Orange Is the New Black. There's a new bitch in town." --Amy Dresner, author of My Fair Junkie

"A great read for fans of Orange is the New Black, this national bestseller provides a shocking and propulsive look into the life of an addict. Tiffany Jenkins never had a good track record with local law enforcement. Addicted to opiates, her list of criminal offenses was over 20 long when she was finally incarcerated. In High Achiever, Jenkins recounts the 120 days she spent in a Florida jail, surrounded by officers who hated her for the way she treated her boyfriend: the Deputy Sheriff in town. Jenkins breaks down the stigma around drug addiction and recovery in her first book, giving readers a story that is both joyous and heartbreaking.", "10 Debut Summer Books by Women Everyone Should Read"

Product Description

NATIONAL BESTSELLER • An up-close portrait of the mind of an addict and a life unraveled by narcotics—a memoir of captivating urgency and surprising humor that puts a human face on the opioid crisis.
“Raw, brutal, and shocking. Move over, Orange Is the New Black.”—Amy Dresner, author of My Fair Junkie

When word got out that Tiffany Jenkins was withdrawing from opiates on the floor of a jail cell, people in her town were shocked. Not because of the twenty felonies she’d committed, or the nature of her crimes, or even that she’d been captain of the high school cheerleading squad just a few years earlier, but because her boyfriend was a Deputy Sherriff, and his friends—their friends—were the ones who’d arrested her.
A raw and twisty page-turning memoir that reads like fiction, High Achiever spans Tiffany’s life as an active opioid addict, her 120 days in a Florida jail where every officer despised what she’d done to their brother in blue, and her eventual recovery. With heart-racing urgency and unflinching honesty, Jenkins takes you inside the grips of addiction and the desperate decisions it breeds. She is a born storyteller who lived an incredible story, from blackmail by an ex-boyfriend to a soul-shattering deal with a drug dealer, and her telling brims with suspense and unexpected wit. But the true surprise is her path to recovery. Tiffany breaks through the stigma and silence to offer hope and inspiration to anyone battling the disease—whether it’s a loved one or themselves.
