Kerry Cohen was eleven years old when she recognized the power of her body in the leer of a grown man. Her parents were recently divorced and it didn't take long before their lassitude and Kerry's desire to stand out--to be memorable in some way--combined to lead her down a path she knew she shouldn't take. She wanted love--but not really understanding what love was, not really knowing how to get it, she reached for sex instead. This story of addiction--not just to sex, but to male attention--is also the story of a young girl who came to believe that boys and men--it didn't matter who--could give her life meaning. Her journey from that hopeless place to her current confident and fulfilled existence is a cautionary tale, and a revelation.--From publisher description.… (mer)

This was an emotional read but it was a really good to have someone come forward and tell there story. Kerry did an amazing job writing this. ( )

On the one hand, there's the same old modern tale: pretty white girl with problems turns to booze/other drugs/sex/bulimia to try to gain some control over her emotionally shattered life. On the other, there's the fact Kerry Cohen has a beautiful voice as a writer and weaves an aching, visceral memoir that is quite interesting to read. Another note: no Twelve Step Program. (spoiler)I noticed the anticlimactic ending, but it didn't bother me. In the interview in the back of the edition I checked out of the library, Cohen mentions some readers expressed a desire for a big "addiction moment" and traditional recovery. This just isn't her story, and I think it's more realistic for it -- AA, for instance, has a startlingly low success rate.(/spoiler) ( )

Browsed this as the wife and kiddo wandered around the very un-PC Target today. I was thinking it was gonna be all Samantha Fox but it came off as tending more toward Jesus Loves Porn Stars.

Just sayin'.
