I was really dissapointed with this book. It started off okay, and I was under the impression that the book would be a record collecting memoir from a female perspective. I thought it would be a female version of John Sellers' "Perfect From Now On". This book was not that. Her experiences with music revolve mostly around her relationships. The music almost seemed secondary, and I had trouble believing that she loved music, just the boys who loved music. Read "Perfect From Now On" or Chuck Klosterman's "Killing Yourself to Live" instead. If you do want a rock book from a female perspective, read "She Bop" by Lucy O'Brian.
