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 vivid, heartbreaking, and harrowing story that explores the depths of addiction.

What Readers and Reviewers Are Saying About Teenage Degenerate:

“The writing is excellent. I love all the music details. What a horrific addiction. It seems the user becomes less human as time goes on. There seemed to be some glorified stories but it also stops and makes you think. Maybe this book should be read in high school as a cautionary tale.” ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

“I couldn’t put it down, very well written, takes you on a journey from the first time he tries crystal all the way to the end. As someone whose been through addiction it’s very relatable at times and a must read for anyone looking to learn more about crystal/addiction from the addicts point of view.” ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

“This book had me hooked from the start. A well written Memoir of a teen drug addicts journey through their addiction.” ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

“I’m very grateful to have read this book and gained the insight of a crystal user I’ve never gone that far down the rabbit hole and never will and my heart goes out to all those who still suffer. Very insightful to see how quickly the life of a user declines and deteriorates.” ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

“I have read this book twice since I bought it! I wanted to find a novel that featured a drug-addicted protagonist whose story breathed authenticity, and Sterling definitely delivered with his story. Unlike the overrated Go Ask Alice (which screamed anti-drug propaganda to me), Sterling gives the reader a true glimpse of what it is like to be a meth addict, without packing it full of cliches. The characters are beautifully developed, and Sterling paints a dark, genuine picture. Definitely a must-read!” ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
