Tatum O'Neil Hollywood's biggest spoiled brat with a zero tolerance level. No wonder she was a junkie for half her life. I really do not like the way she puts down her father for her own fame, it's disgusting. There are two ways to look at families and life in general, positive or negative, Tatum chooses negative. One day she will wake up and realize she is not much different than the father she complains about so much. Who refers to thier father as "Ryan"? him dad or my father. This book annoyed me, can you tell? It's the rantings of a washed up actress, extremely pitiful to trash your own family no matter what happens in it.....some people will do anything for money and fame, Tatum is that person.

Reading this book is easier if you've read her first novel, "Paper Life" as she refers to it quite a bit, but never goes in to great detail. While Tatum isn't a great writer, she made an effort and she definitely has a tragic story to tell. I would have found it more interesting if Tatum hadn't kept telling the reader what to think and feel as I read it.
A scattered, but somewhat interesting, quick read.
