If you've bought this book there's a good chance its because you've read her sister Amy's autobiographical tales 'The Sunset strip diaries' and 'Confetti covered quicksand'. This book is similar but not quite as enjoyable IMO.
That's quite suprising because if anything Becky's life was just as crazy as her sisters yet the writing itself seems to lack the same degree of interest. Where Amy's story was told over two fairly lengthy books, Becky's seems to just be summerized highlights. I managed to read the whole book in just one evening.
The story is fairly similar, young girl goes off the rails when her parents divorce and her homelife breaks down. She almost knowingly makes some bad choices, dating bad guys and getting hooked on drugs. Eventually she manages to grow out of the self destructiveness.
I would recommend that young girls read this book or anyone stuck in her position and needing encouragement or inspiration to change for the better, but overall the whole thing felt kind of rushed, and not as thoughtfully written as her sisters books.

Just like her sister Amys' book she captured the emotions of the era and her age perfectly, a very solid at times melancholy book that makes you wish her and her sister had the solidarity to pull each other through the turmoil they felt. A great read.

HASH(0x8c16c918) out of 5 stars Couldn't put it down. 2 April 2013
By chickychick - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Man, this was a rare find. A very forthcoming story about a valley girl in the 90's who is trying to find herself in drugs, music, guys, dance...whatever she can find outside of her broken family. Very sad and hilarious at the same time. Interesting and entertaining read - highly recommended.

HASH(0x8c348a80) out of 5 stars Glam to grunge... 23 Aug. 2013
By Diane Shalla-Rausa - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I will say it was a fun book to read, being that I lived thru that same time frame at about the same age. Over all I enjoyed reading it, reminiscing...something which I also did while reading Amy's books. The transition from the glam rock scene in Amy's books to the grunge era in Becky's book was cool to read.

I love this book so much. Her stories are very entertaining to read, i think we all can relate in some way or another. I have also read all of Amy Asbury's books and i highly recommend them. Please write some more, i'm ready for the next one.

HASH(0x8c8238f4) out of 5 stars A great trip down memory lane 29 April 2013

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this book. Brought back lots of memories about the music and culture of my own life. She had a rough teenage life but I'm happy she got it together. If you like this book, I would recommend all of her sister's books as well. I'm happy they documented so much.... great reads!!
