Summary
With a career, a boyfriend, and a loving family, Piper Kerman barely resembles the reckless young woman who delivered a suitcase of drug money ten years ago. But when that past catches up with her, the well-heeled Smith College alumna becomes inmate #11187-424 at the infamous federal correctional facility in Danbury, Connecticut. From her first strip search to her final release, Kerman learns to navigate this strange world. Heartbreaking, hilarious, and at times enraging, her story offers a rare look into the lives of women in prison
Summary
Follows the author's incarceration for drug trafficking, during which she gained a unique perspective on the criminal justice system and met a varied community of women living under exceptional circumstances
