My Story

Author(s): Schapelle Corby; Kathryn Bonella (As told to)

Australian

The no. 1 bestselling memoir, co-written by Schapelle Corby and Kathryn Bonella, the author of Hotel Kerobokan and Snowing in Bali.Schapelle's story is like no other - a young woman experiencing the unimaginable, and enduring the unendurable with courage, strength and humour.It was meant to be a two-week break to a tropical paradise. But for Schapelle Corby it ended up a waking nightmare. She was arrested at Denpasar airport after 4.2 kilograms of marijuana were found in her bag. Schapelle had become the real-life victim of every traveller's darkest fear - drugs had been placed in her bag after she checked it in. Though innocent, she was forced to face the consequences of another'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 stories of the decade in Australia, and the entire nation watched in horror as she was sentenced to twenty years in jail. Her story has rarely left the headlines in the years since. In her searing and compelling book we hear her tell her own story: of being wrenched from a carefree holiday into a stinking police cell, of an alien legal system where her attempts to prove herself innocent were thwarted at every turn, and of learning to survive - day by terrible day - in the squalor, discomfort and violence of a third-world jail.
