DANCING ON A RAZOR’S EDGE

About the book
With the courage to follow her instincts, Mandy Whyte is able to get her malnourished and brain-damaged Kiwi-born son, Hemi, from his new base in Australia to hers in Indonesia, and provide home care that turns him around.

This is a book about tenacity and love. It explores the limits of care available for drug addicts in New Zealand and Australia, and challenges the idea that it’s up to these people to find their own way to treatment. Whyte declares any other approach is both socially negligent and a violation of human rights.

As our families, health services and courts try to come to grips with the scourge of crystal meth that is devastating so many lives, Dancing on a Razor’s Edge is a must read.
