I remember the media swirl around the Drug Grannies and the debate about letting them go or keeping them locked up but also of not giving them a second thought as they spent their time in prison. So I was interested in reading about them and this is an interesting book.

Logan brings the ‘grannies’ (although neither of them had children let alone grandchildren) to life as real live humans and the trauma they went through because of trusting a beloved nephew.

I think Logan’s book also shines a light on the inherently cruel misogynistic culture that abounds in Australian government and society. Why? for example, were many younger women ‘drug runners’ given lighter sentences than Toddie and Beezie? Was it because these two were ageing women without husbands or children and as such were invisible and therefore expendable…?
