Praise for Tiffany Jenkins
Praise for High Achiever
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”
