"An entertaining, cheeky and simple memoir of a rouge teenage girl." - Kirkus Reviews
"This intentionally shocking sexual biography of the author's life centers around her abundant adventures and misadventures starting at the precocious age of thirteen and going into her early twenties. the running episodes, which are sometimes connected by the same people, are absorbing, candid and utterly graphic. A powerful, no-holds barred portrait emerges of a troubled but resilient girl/woman succumbing to her sexual appetite for the most part but still advancing into a measure of maturity as she goes from one sexual partner to another. Descriptions of the many sexual encounters are vividly detailed with little left to the imagination. her story encompasses bumps and betrayls in relationships as well as break-ups and reconciliations. Her sexual saga take place at a variety of locations, both domestic and international. Drugs, prescription and otherwise, come in to meaningful play. Recounting of an abortion is particularly vivid. The girl/woman's perspective on herself and her sexual identity, comes across as a very genuine and revealing effort at self-awareness."
