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.… (plus d'informations)

Brutally honest, often disturbing and unflinching in her account of her years as a drug addict, Tiffany provides a glimpse into her feelings of desperation, despair, followed by triumphant hope and recovery. ( )
  SallyElizabethMurphy | May 20, 2021 |
Beyond being a story of inspiration and hope in the grip of addiction, High Achiever is very well written by a natural story teller. At different times you will be on the edge of your seat, have tears streaming down your face, or uncontrollably smiling so hard that your cheeks hurt. Tiffany Jenkins has a number of videos on Facebook sharing the joys and challenges of her current life: Juggling the Jenkins. I encourage everyone, whether they've struggled with addiction or not, to check out this book and/or her videos on Facebook.

Interesting read about how addiction spiral out of control. Also, insight on being in jail and the consequences along with the success afterwards. ( )

Absolutely bonkers memoir of an addiction to opioids. It’s one of those books that everyone in treatment centers should read, I think. ( )
