Suffer Little Children
by Angela Harrison
Jamie’s unreliability has a devastating effect on Max, her eleven-year-old son. His depression and anger severely affect his life and school work. Angela seeks medical help.
One of Jami e’s punters, a teacher, is besotted by her. He funds her drug habit and insists Jamie goes to a rehab in Italy. She decides not to go at the last minute, believing it to be a religious cult.
The mother of a crack addict/prostitute contacts Angela for support after reading Crackhead. Her daughter Zoe and Jamie have so much in common. Zoe decides to go to the rehab in Italy. However, within twenty-four hours upon her arrival, she escapes and returns to Britain claiming it is a scam.
Jamie steals a huge quantity of drugs from a dealer, goes into hiding, and uses the drugs herself. As time passes she is diagnosed with Hepatitis C and a tumour.
During a stay in Stratford, Jamie works in a café and call-centre. Her mental health rapidly deteriorates; no help is available due to health cuts. She moves in with Denis, a long-standing punter friend, who lives in Leamington. He cares for Jamie as her health continues to fail.
