About this book:

In this a no-holds-barred account of her post addiction addictions, Ferguson becomes enslaved by self-help fads, Oprah, 12 step meetings, dodgy men and social media. She finds herself trapped in a world where instant gratification and narcissism is the norm. She struggles to break the cycle of "more, more,more", of use and abuse which is deeply embedded in her DNA. 

Readers say

"Humorous, hectically honest, told with a sexiness only a Joburg girl can pull off, this is reading as compulsive as Melinda herself"

– Karabo Kgoleng


"A raw, witty and achingly human account of post-rehab recovery life."

– Pnina Fenster


"In the tradition of Smacked, Hooked continues to tell it like it is.”"

– John Robbie
