Product description

For Schapelle Corby, a dream holiday became a waking nightmare when she was arrested at Denpasar Airport in Bali following the discovery of four kilograms of marijuana in her bag. Though completely innocent, she had to face trial in a country where the penalties for drug smuggling are among the harshest in the world. Her case became one of the biggest news stories of the decade, and her family watched in horror as she was sentenced to 20 years in jail.Now, in this searing and utterly compelling book, Schapelle has finally been given the chance to tell her story: of being incarcerated in a stinking police cell, of an alien legal system where her attempts to prove her innocence were thwarted at every turn, and of learning to survive in the squalor and violence of an Indonesian jail - where she remains today. Schapelle's story is an account like no other - of a young woman experiencing the unimaginable and enduring total hell with courage, strength and humour. It's the most unforgettable book you'll ever read.
