It was meant to be a holiday. A two-week break to a tropical paradise to celebrate a sister's birthday. But for Schapelle Corby it ended up a waking nightmare. Arrested at Denpasar airport after marijuana was found in her board bag, she had become the victim of every traveller's darkest fear. Over four kilograms of drugs had been placed in her bag after she'd checked it in and she was forced to face the consequences of someone else's crime in a country where the penalties for drug smuggling are among the harshest in the world. Her trial and conviction became one of the biggest news stories of the decade and her family watched in horror as she was sentenced to 19 years in jail. Yet despite the huge media coverage, the one voice the public never properly heard was Schapelle's. Now, in this utterly compelling book, she tells her own story: of being wrenched from a carefree holiday and incarcerated in a stinking police cell and of learning to survive - in the squalour, discomfort and violence of an Indonesian jail. Schapelle's story is an account like no other and will be one of the most unforgettable books you'll ever read.
