Publisher's Summary

Schapelle Corby walked out of Kerobokan Prison in 2014, leaving behind a dark hellhole of violence, corruption and squalor, and straight into a global media circus.

She had been Hotel K's most famous inmate. 

Schapelle was a 27-year-old beauty-school student when, in 2004, Bali customs officers found 4.2 kilograms of marijuana in her boogie-board bag. She was convicted of a crime she still vehemently denies committing. 

She spent 10 years in Hotel K, where she survived unimaginable horrors, corrupt guards, degrading conditions and abuse at the hands of other prisoners, but also, amazingly, found the love of her life - a love that still burns strong. 

In this revised and updated edition of My Story, first published in 2006, Schapelle describes her descent into madness and finding her way back, the chaos of her release, the trials of surviving outside on parole and, eventually, her dramatic return to Australia, all the while hounded mercilessly by the media. 

This is the first time since 2006 that Schapelle has spoken, driven by a determination to show she has emerged, scarred, but with her dignity, humour and courage intact. 

Written with best-selling author Kathryn Bonella, this is a deeply unsettling but utterly compelling tale of what should have been a holiday in paradise but instead turned into 13 years of living hell.

Misophonia...!!!

I REALLY wanted to listen to this book, I was intrigued with Schapelle's story - as there were so many holes and questions about her guilt, HOWEVER, while Casey Withoos is a great narrator, I find it impossible to listen to this book, due to the sound editing. Its like nails on a chalk board hearing Casey's inhalation breath so loudly! Why isn't this edited and recorded better? Please understand THIS IS real....mysophia - Im not the only person that suffers, and its due to inadequate recording. Its the second Casey Withoos narration I gave up on.

Raw and Powerful

Narrator is awesome!
Powerful true story of the pain Schapelle and her family endured over 10 years of life in a bali jail, living with false accusations and how she dealt with the invasive and persistent journalists and everyday life.

Very interesting book that will show the truth

Great narrator, and a story that will help you see the truth of what Schapelle went through, through her eyes and in great detail. It made me want to reach out and give her a big virtual hug. A heartbreaking experience and I wish her the happiest life ever from here on out.
