    I cannot speak highly enough of this book. Mark starts off his story as a very young boy in a life filled with violence and chaos. He tried alcohol and drugs at an incredibly young age and found that with them he could escape his torturous reality but never for long enough. Thus started a long, thrilling, terrifying, exciting and at times horrifying relationship with drugs. He writes so beautifully that you are there with him every step of the way. At times I found myself yelling at the book like people yell at movies when they can’t believe what the person is doing - that’s how involved I became. He doesn’t glamourise any part of it. It is not a pretty story but it’s fantastic and real. Read it!!
