(Read 5/2009). The second book in her autobiographical series (2 of 6). This book is set in her teen years after she had her son (at age 16). It was a bit of a shocker to discover via reading this book that she was at some point in her life the madame of a brothel, a prostitute in a brothel, and moved around more times in 3 years than I have probably in my entire life, and I have lived in 3 different states. It is the most off-putting in the series; but, if you hang on for number three you will not be disappointed because it is a much more fluid and interesting read, and has more of her reflections on life that I personally love and adore.
