Don't let her see me cry is a real story written by a former drug addict mum who got pregnant when she was sentenced to jail. Helen then gave birth to the child, and it was the first time in Australia's history that the child was allowed to live with her until she was 6.
It really take the readers into the journey of a drug addict and it helps us understand why are these people hooked to drugs. The only negative point I can give is, it's very long-winded, thus there are a lot of parts which aren't really needed.
Other than that, I totally enjoyed the story especially when she talks about how she handled her addiction, and the seperation. Also, I love the part where she finally decided to breakthrough and then became a drug counsellor. A very inspiring story, I must say, albeit a bit too long.
