Teenage Drug Dealer

Indra Sena tells the tale of her life as a teenage drug dealer at the height of the cocaine boom in the early eighties. It is also the tale of her totally stuffed up child hood and what lead her at 16 to be selling the white stuff.
She was in so many ways a very lucky teenager many in her place ended up living on the street or selling their bodies to survive. This book is very easy to read and you are drawn into the authors increasing hedonistic lifestyle. With big money to be made the end was always inevitable and it is was painful to read.

Overall this is a very raw and powerful book. I had to keep reminding myself that this was not a work of fiction. As always with books such as this it makes me appreciate my own lot in life a lot more
