Wow, what can I say….What a sad story, but not just about what happened to the writer, but also her inability to truly understand the consequences of her own choices and actions and how much that fact plays a big part in many of the things that happened to her. Throughout the book she places blame for her circumstances on almost everyone that she comes in contact with in life. She starts out blaming her mother and from then on anyone that does not let her get her way is the blame for where she ends up. For example, when her father’s family responsibilities grow almost over night, Karrine cannot stand the pressure of added responsibility on her in the new family structure, so what does she do? She runs away from what she described as a beautiful home basically into the streets at the age of 16. As a young wife and mother, she eventually just drops her baby off with his dad so that she can chase pipe dreams and another man. She then accuses her ex husband of not raising the baby properly because he’s giving the kid sugared drinks. With that she takes the baby back with her and pretty much leaves him at the mercy of babysitters, while she spends long nights and days again chasing a dream. The book is basically a tell-all and the writer drops the names of the many celebrities that she has encountered. I just hope that when this young lady reads the pages of her own book that she will be able to take a look in the mirror one day and own up to the choices she has made.
