I first saw this book on a Waldenbooks shelf when I was 13. Being fascinated by anything having to do with rock stars and the people that surround them, I was immediately drawn to it. I asked my mom if I could buy it. She picked it up, flipped through it and read a few passages, and promptly said no. My open-minded mother never objected to much, so I knew it must've been pretty steamy. Fast forward to adulthood. I had one of those "I'm really a grown-up now!" moments when I saw the book again on a library shelf and was able to check it out with no parental objections.
Miss Pamela has a truly endearing voice. She makes you feel like you're really there, strolling the Sunset Strip during the heyday of rock and roll. She encounters everyone from Jim Morrison, the Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, and a couple of Beatles. What a fascinating life she has had. This book definitely needed to be written!
