Zoo Station

The Story of Christiane F.

  • Interest Level: Grade 8 - Grade 12   ·  
  • Reading Level: Grade 8

This incredible autobiography of Christiane F. provides a vivid portrait of teen friendship, drug abuse, and alienation in and around Berlin’s notorious Zoo Station. Christiane’s rapid descent into heroin abuse and prostitution is shocking, but the boredom, longing for acceptance, thrilling risks, and even her musical obsessions are familiar to everyone. Previously published in Germany and the US to critical acclaim, Zest’s new translation includes original photographs of Christiane and her friends.
