There comes a time in every girl’s life, when she has to choose good or choose bad. Amy Asbury chose bad. Good meant wallflowers, secretaries and subservient wives. Bad meant power and the possibility of escaping a life of secrets. At twelve years old, Amy was trying to make sense of her drug-addicted father and his disturbing behavior. By fifteen, she was dealing with debilitating depression, blackouts and being raped. At sixteen, she was in a mental institution for suicidal tendencies and violent behavior. Amy knew she could never be normal. The only place for a girl like her was Hollywood.
This is the true story of the social ascent, and eventual decline, of a girl living the Sunset Strip music scene of the early 90's. From crazy parties to glittered junkies, and man-eating strippers, Amy has chronicled what life was like back in the days of excess and debauchery. It is not just a fascinating look into an amusing time in pop culture, but it also details the mindset of a young woman trying to find confidence and self-worth in a life full of pain and chaos.
