High Achiever: The Incredible True Story of One Addict's Double Life

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Tiffany Jenkins

Narrated By: Tiffany Jenkins

Date: June 2019

Duration: 8 hours 54 minutes

Summary:

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.

    This is the best book I have ever heard/read in my life. Maybe it is because I'm also a recovering addict and can relate, but I don't think that is the only reason I'm so in love with this book. I've been watching Tiffany on fb for a few year's and knew she had struggled with addiction in her past but I had no idea what her real story was and how insane her life actaully was. It's an amazing story and the way she tells it is as I'd your there with her when it happening. I'm so happy and proud of her for the person she is and what she is doing with her life and I dont even personally know her! Best Book Ever!!

    Very interesting and well-written. Author is a gifted writer! The only reason for minus one star is the continuous "F" bombs (and other cursing) all the way to the very end. At first, I assumed the bad language was necessary in order to accurately represent the author's state of mind during the events but it never really slowed down. I love to recommend books that I highly enjoy to others but the language in this one is too pervasive for my friends who are turned off by the poor choice of words. However, readers who do not mind constant expletives should definitely read this book. I have a much deeper understanding of the thought process addiction creates. The author's life as recorded in this book played out like a movie! I could not stop listening to it! Tiffany is so transparent and honest about her inner thoughts and emotions, I feel like I bonded with her and that she is now my friend. :) Now that I've finished the book, I miss her. lol

    Saw raw and true. One of the best books I’ve ever read. I’m currently listening again. Her own voice being used is even better.
