First line of Book:(since I couldn't find it in english, I translated it)
The student Christiane Vera F., a minor with penal responsibilities, is accused of acquiring intentionally and continuously, since May 20th 1976, substances or mixtures subject to the narcotics law, without counting with the authorization needed from the Federal Sanity Department."
Review:I really, really, really loved this book. i don't usually like nonfiction, because it depresses me, but this is written in a way that makes me love it! It is the true story of Christiane Vera Felscherinow, who lived in Berlin, where she started taking drugs, first, just hashish and LSD, but then she got into heroin. It talks about the hard work it is to leave drugs, what you feel, what the environment in the places you get them is, what kind of people the junkies are, everything! This really gives you great knowledge of how things are, it's amazing. I must re-read it!
Rating: 4.5/5
