Any time you read one band members account of the band's history you know that you're missing all kinds of perspective. I'm sure that's even worse when the band member is a 16 year old girl.

But Cherie Currie's life is a wild enough ride that it's enjoyable anyway. You can see her grow and I appreciate (at least in this new edit) some of her older and more mature perspective on her life. She's honest about her petty fights with her family, band, and friends. But she's also understanding of when she caused the problem, and it's nice to see her forgiveness for those she feels slighted her.

I kind of expected to read this and be annoyed by a bratty star who expected everything to go her way. I get the feeling that that's what Cherie WAS like, but she's seen more of life than the fast lane and is able to portray that in a sympathetic way that makes me forgive a lot of bad decisions on her part.

Totally worth a read if you're a fan of the Runaways.
