    I ve always been a huge Joan Jett fan so this book was a magnet for me Loved the whole book, her life and her story Unlike many celebrity memoirs I have read, she is so likable you just can t help but feel all that she has survived I love this girl and love this book

    I think it goes without saying that the writing isn t inventive literary genius, or like, follows normal rules of tenses But that s not why you read this book you read it to see what life is like going from a 15 year old valley freak, to a 17 year old banshee in a globe trotting touring band, to a 21 year old coke burnou

    When I first read this book, I was a little confused I had to go back and read it again Basically, I was confused because I have no idea how a memoir this good raw and honest and confused and funny and sad could have been boiled down to the piece of garbage that was the movie, The Runaways Seriously, how did that happen Currie is not the most fa
