Brilliant autobiography from an extraordinary person. The Runaways were more than a female band consisting of young precocious teenage girls, they were a great rock band, and Cherie was a great front person.
But as a fan, I knew that Kim Fowley was not a good role model for these girls, but never for a second did I think that he was this bad.
This a fantastic book, which shows Cherie to be an incredibly brave and resilient person, with an incredible capacity for forgiveness. She doesn't hold back at all, admits her own faults, but her character shines through, and her ability to deal with everything and come through it on top is an example to us all.
Even if you have never heard of Cherie Currie or the Runaways, this is still a book well worth reading.

A heart wrenching story that makes you laugh and cry. Full of hope and sadness and then, at the end hope again.
Ms Curie has had one hell of a life and I urge you to read her story. From teen rock icon too Hollywood actress to drug addict who is unemployable! to well adjusted family member. Her up and down story fills the heart with saDNESS AND THE EYES WITH TEARS, AT TIMES YOU WANT TO BANG HER HEAD AGAINST THE WALL, BUT IT'S ALL PART OF HER SICKNESS. THEN TEARS OF JOY AS SHE SLOWLY GETS HER LIFE .BACK TOGETHER. A GREAT READ

Finished this book in 2 days. Couldn't put it down it was so interesting and at times harsh but that was the reality for these poor explored young girls. Great read

Finally I got to read the book, meet Cherie, get it signed and see her play live. What a rollercoaster journey her life has had, this book was a really enjoyable read.

This is probably the most truthful and thought out auto-biography I have ever read. You really get to dive into the mind of Cherie Currie, and learn about everything she faced growing up as a Runaway from the highs to the lowest of lows, learning how she has built herself back up to the strongest person I could ever imagine. Absolutely flawless read, if you are thinking of buying this book do not hesitate.

The book itself seems fine but when it takes 3 weeks to arrive you doubt it will ever arrive.
Enquiries were dealt with by a smartass "robot".
Not clever.

For anyone into the runaways, or rock (especially womwen's rock) in general, this is a very open and frank memoir of life on the road, plus an uplifting account of how the author has dealt with and survived awful things that would have broken the spirit of many. It is very compellingly-written and includes issues and events that the makers of the film shied-away from including in the film.

This is a hard hitting honest to goodness memoirs of Cherie Currie, lead singer with the all female band the Runaways. its funny and tragic at the same time.
Once i started this book I couldn't put it down until I finished it. Its an eye opener in to the the real world of sex, drugs and Rock n Roll.
