Meili Cady was kept in the dark about most of the details of the drug smuggling operations that she took part in, so most of her book is filled with drawn-out, schoolgirl-level drama between her and Lisette, the so-called Pot Princess of Beverly Hills.
The chapter headings were misleading and made me believe that Ms. Cady was finally going to get to something interesting, only to find myself having to force myself through more tired melodrama.
There wasn't enough to this story to justify publishing this book.
