I couldn't put this down and stayed up all night to finish it. I was a Joan Jett fan, Lita Ford fan, and saw Cherie Currie in the movie, Foxes and was completely sucked into Cherie Currie's autobiographical account of those crazy crazy years in the Runaways. This edition includes a very nice intro from Joan Jett. The story also goes beyond the years of the Runaways to chronicle Cherie's personal journey through drugs, alcohol and the Hollywood scene. Great story. Good for her for making it through and getting through it all with hope and inspiration.
