A Glimpse Inside a Hidden World
Narrated by the teenage girl who lived it, Closet Full of Coke tells the true story of how a New York suburban fifteen-year-old girl's savvy and wit helps turn the small-time drug business of Armando, a Colombian drug dealer, into a multi-million-dollar cocaine operation that puts them on the DEA's Wanted List.
This intimate diary gives readers a fast-paced glimpse of the couple’s speedy rise to riches, and their inevitable descent.
These wannabe drug lords of the 1980s New York-to-Florida drug scene end their story only three years later with an untimely death, betrayal, and revenge.
Here is a true account of drug dealers whose obsession with money, power, sex, and glamor drives them to a lifestyle of deceit and recklessness, ending in tragedies that destroy lives forever.
This is no ordinary memoir; this is Memoir Noir
From the Author:
I wanted the foolish girl I once was to tell her story without interruption. The result is a diary written like a novel. There is no reflection or analysis. There is a salacious story full of colorful characters and dialog, told by the teenager who lived it.
Drug dealers have an interesting ethos unknown to outsiders. They live by elaborate rules and codes, and use intricate methodology to conduct business. They are far more organized than people imagine, and they see themselves as business people and entrepreneurs. Serious dealers who want success don't use drugs and they deal to other dealers, not to users.
Readers have called it "haunting," "a car wreck you can't look away from," "a roller coaster ride," and "Alice in Wonderland meets Scarface." So if you like the edge of your seat, hold on tight and listen to my story.

"latch key kid gone bad"
i loved the narrator of this book. she really made this common story come alive.....she made me feel like the characters were my friends too!
For a book written about someone 30 years ago it was pretty direct and specific. The person reading the book was WAY to dramatic and mispronounced WAY to many words.
No, I am just turned off the the Auther and the person that read the book.
Less dramatization better pronouncing of words.
I had high hopes for this book but all around I have been let down. I am starting to thing the people writing reviews for this book are friends because nothing about this girls life was all that bad. She had horrible parents but no abuse either mentally or physically she should count herself lucky. What is see is a Brat that dropped out of school to sell drugs. I wish I could get my credit back for this one.
