What a journey? Touching, thought provoking, poignant yet inspirational. Try as a might, I cannot select just one poem as my personal favourite, not when the standard is this high. I have been able to narrow the list down to four, however. Finding the perfect words, another yesterday, your ego has no halo and pulling the trigger. Unnecessary poetry is a truly beautiful collection and I get the feeling we’ll be hearing a lot more from this very talented newcomer.
Where to begin? This book is both compelling and shocking. The author pulls no punches and takes the reader on a journey; an honest, brutal journey which examines the nature of drug addiction and mental illness. Rarely have I come across a book which is thought-provoking, tragic, violent, uplifting and educational...all at the same time.
Frankly, not only was I unable to put this book down, I was also unable to stop thinking about its content for several days after reading it. If you only buy one book this year, make sure it's "My life as a white, female drug dealer." Not only is it the most important book this year so far, it will change your perspective about the life of an addict, forever.
