Book Details

Explore an urban underworld where many people get lost, lose it or just disappear! Twenty-something Oli shapes a torrent of chemicals into a searing account of survival in the urban Melbourne scene.
Amidst ravenous addictions, spiralling dead ends and violence on both sides of the law, Oli keeps her wits, and her life, to record this story.
On slippery ground all the way, it soon becomes clear why in this world – you have to stay cool.
