AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'At 15 Anna Wood went to a party and took an ecstasy tablet...

'She was beautiful, she had a loving family and countless friends. Yet on 21 October 1995, Anna Wood took an ecstasy tablet at a dance party and died three days later. A life destroyed, a family devastated, a community in shock.

'Bronwyn Donaghy interviewed friends, family members and numerous professionals in order to write the story of the circumstances surrounding Anna′s death and of her family′s decision to try and turn tragedy into a positive force for good.

'It is a story of our times, a story with powerful resonances for Anna′s generation and their parents, for counsellors, doctors and teachers, for anyone who values the sanctity of life.' (From the publisher's website.)
