Publisher's Summary

Breaking Bad meets The Basketball Diaries!

In 1996, Scott was nineteen and lost in adulthood with an endless job and no future ambitions. Teenage Degenerate is his story about drug addiction, music and growing up. Over the course of ten months, he quickly descends into the dark and dangerous world of crystal methamphetamine.

Scott experiments with crystal meth in a dark, deserted parking lot in the suburbs of Denver, Colorado and soon after his crew of misfits will do almost anything for their next high. One by one, family and friends disappear, and he is left alone with a decision to continue fighting or give up. This is his struggle to reclaim a normal life and the search for something real.

Teenage Degenerate is a brutally truthful, humorous and heartbreaking journey that explores the depths of addiction.

    "Very involving."

    Very involving although depressing story. Also, too short. I wish the author expanded on the getting out of drugs chapter of his life.

    Story
    "Not really what I expected"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This book was written as more as a diary, hence the word memoir in the title. It went through the daily life of how this young man scored, sold and used meth. The words used would be those of a teenage boy when referring to having sex with girls and what and when he would. So that was a little surprising. He never got caught or had any of the consequences that come from addiction. But being a middle class boy living in the suburbs it was his view.
