Millie's is a tale of America's longest war -- the war on drugs. Dr. Nelson Goodman's novel has no hidden agenda. Rather, its agenda bursts from the book's preface in clear and powerful language; and whether readers agree or disagree, they must read on. Millie is a promising teenager with a troubled home life. She finds solace in alcohol, which leads to marijuana, and ultimately heroin. As a result of her drug dependency, she discovers she is a criminial, who embarks on a legal journey that leads her all the way to the Supreme Court.
