I would recommend this to lots of friends, but I'm not in love with it. It was one of those strange books with lots of parts I hated, but a few I absolutely adored. I imagine my parents are very lucky I didn't discover this book during my teenage years. I liked the parts that were taken from her diaries. I hated Dave Navarro's lame introduction. I expected much better from him. I liked the P.S. but I hated the 2005 edition P.S. I was over it before it ended, but I sort of want to leave it again... It is what it is.
