NATIONAL BESTSELLER • An up-close portrait of the mind of an addict and a life unraveled by narcotics—a memoir of captivating urgency and surprising humor that puts a human face on the opioid crisis.
 
“Raw, brutal, and shocking. Move over, Orange Is the New Black.”—Amy Dresner, author of My Fair Junkie

When word got out that Tiffany Jenkins was withdrawing from opiates on the floor of a jail cell, people in her town were shocked. Not because of the twenty felonies she’d committed, or the nature of her crimes, or even that she’d been captain of the high school cheerleading squad just a few years earlier, but because her boyfriend was a Deputy Sherriff, and his friends—their friends—were the ones who’d arrested her.
 
A raw and twisty page-turning memoir that reads like fiction, High Achiever spans Tiffany’s life as an active opioid addict, her 120 days in a Florida jail where every officer despised what she’d done to their brother in blue, and her eventual recovery. With heart-racing urgency and unflinching honesty, Jenkins takes you inside the grips of addiction and the desperate decisions it breeds. She is a born storyteller who lived an incredible story, from blackmail by an ex-boyfriend to a soul-shattering deal with a drug dealer, and her telling brims with suspense and unexpected wit. But the true surprise is her path to recovery. Tiffany breaks through the stigma and silence to offer hope and inspiration to anyone battling the disease—whether it’s a loved one or themselves.

No matter if you are the addict, the one wanting to understand the addict, or just looking for a good read this book is for you! I ordered this book in hopes of understanding addiction. I am a Deputy and I work with girls everyday that have serious addiction problems. I was completely amazed that for someone (me) that doesn’t read at all, I couldn’t put this book down. Not only did I read it but I was transformed into the book and felt as though I was right there with Tiffany the whole time. I got this book cleared by my programs in our jail and bought 3 more copies. This book is now in 4 different pods in hope to touch…

She is real and tells it all, whether good or bad. As someone that has always been affected by and wanted to understand addiction better I have read many books on the subject and have never been so captivated by one. It is definitely a page turner. Every time I put it down I could not wait to pick it back up again. This book will take you through many highs, lows, and even…

Captivating someone who doesn’t read, this book is amazing! I first discovered Tiffany from a funny video from Facebook. I could not stop at just one video, I had to find more; I did. Tiffany not only is funny but creative, real, sensitive and positive. She captivated me with her funny videos,yes. There are so many of those but also, thought provoking ones,videos where she portrays her creative side. Once in awhile you will see her sister in the videos and you can tell they have a heck of a bond. It is awesome. Tiffany also does live videos and is raw…
