"Even if you aren't interested in the hair band scene of the early 90's, this is a really entertaining book. Cat fights, mental hospitals, strippers, heroin, wild parties, blackmail and lots of 80's celebs in the background- all around madness. I had to get the sequel the day after I finished this because I had to find out what happened to her"

"After reading books like Nikki Sixx's "The Heroin Diaries" or Slash's "Slash," I was craving more. It was obvious from the descriptions of packed nightclubs that there were a million more stories to be told of the Sunset Strip. Asbury's book is one of those stories. Not only was she a total scenester at your classic Hollywood haunts like the Roxy and the Whisky, rubbing elbows with some of the great and some of the lesser bands at their own low-key gatherings, but she was also dedicated to her high school newspaper and kept an extremely lucid diary chronicling her exploits. This book makes the perfect companion to all those big rock star autobiographies I had been reading. It's the missing link."

"This book will not disappoint if you are interested in the sunset strip glam days. If you were a kid growing up in the 80s, you can relate to so many of the pop culture references. You feel like you're talking to a friend as you read it. I've stayed up til 2 a.m. the past two nights because I can't put this book down."

"Amy Asbury is one of the most exciting writers I have had the pleasure to experience. Her life story (so far) was one giant thrill ride set in the 80's/90's on the strip when it was filled with rockers,bimbos,backstage passes and non-stop excitement.Felt like I was there with her!"
