Opioid crisis is a major, national issue: This is an up-close look at the world of an opioid addict, a raw and juicy story that that also sheds a light on this major crisis—and, uniquely, offers hope to readers. The first time a recovered opioid addict has connected with an audience on this scale, we expect that Tiffany’s personal story will attract national media. And with its recovery angle, this book will backlist on the self-help shelf.
“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.” —BookBub.com, “10 Debut Summer Books by Women Everyone Should Read”
