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.

    This book was a great insight
  • 2 stars .... Boring

    By Shuteysh
    I managed just over 250 pages before skipping to the final couple of chapters and photos at the back. I was disappointed with this book, as I found it just a bit boring. Maybe if it had been condensed, I may have had more patience with it. Oh we'll, can't please all the people.... All the time.

    I have always felt in my heart that Schapelle was innocent so reading this book gave me the insight as to why I felt so strongly. I am so ashamed of our justice system and our governments for not doing their own research into this case. It took the expendable and this book to do their job for a poor young innocent brave young girl and equally her sister. I would encourage everyone to read this book. I think it should be required school reading. Thank you so much Schapelle and Mercedes and the author. I am going to read your other 2 books. Good luck Schapelle on your journey to renewed health and being acquitted sometime in the near future, from a loving mum and grandma.

  • Heartbreaking

    By Marcy May
    Such a well written book. I kept having to remind myself I wasn't reading a made up story. I would remember this is a girl around my age and that this is actually happening. I can't believe it. So very sad.
  • Lots of interesting facts I didn't know. Loved it but very sad.

    After reading Snowing in Bali and Hotel Kerobokan, i decided to give My Story by the same author a read and found it factually interesting, emotional and compelling. I highly recommend this book.
