This book is remarkably dull considering the potential claims made by the author indicated by the books title.
If the Book had been more honestly titled 'Being Nigey: my fifteen minutes of fame with Frank Zappa', I could forgive some of the claims and boasts. Overall this book in my opinion is boring and and sleazy. It takes in a very brief span of her time spent with Zappa and does not really reveal anything more than is already known about him. It is really a desperate ego trip of the author to try and make some claim to fame or notoriety. I did also find her attempts at hip talk, tedious after awhile. Don't waste your hard earned cash.

The author writes with a depth of self-dillusion I have rarely before encountered, clearly little more than a groupie who hung around Zappa's rehearsals, the book aims to promote their "relationship" to a level it far from deserves.
The book offers likttle in the way of insight into Zappa himself, and with long passages of flowery descriptive prose about her feelings, the author has padded out an article at most in a paperback. Further, for those still requiring books with pictures, illustrations are scattered through out that add little to the book's value, but serve to fill out page space.
You'd be better off sticking to one of the other Zappa books, his own entitled The Real Frank Zappa Book would be a better choice.
A poor reflection on how the publishers have cashed in on Zappa's name. A 17 year old groupie falls in love with a star, and convinces herself she nearly became a part of it all. A dreadful book.

.......this book must be read only after reading Howard Kaylan's book Shell Shocked which certainly gives a fascinating insight into Ms Lennon, the sort of goings on around (and arranged by) Uncle Frank on the road, and very much of her highly developed taste for the bizarre.
