Summary
Cherie Currie, with her signature Bowie haircut and fishnet stockings, was the lead singer of seventies teenage all-girl rock band the Runaways. At the tender age of fifteen, she joined a group of talented girls--Joan Jett and Lita Ford on guitar, Jackie Fox on bass, and Sandy West on drums--who could play rock like no one else. Arriving on the Los Angeles music scene in 1975, they catapulted from playing small clubs to selling out major stadiums and touring the world. Currie's is a riveting story of girl empowerment and fame, but it is also an intensely personal account of her struggles with drugs, sexual abuse, and violence. She and her bandmates, runaways all, were thrown into a decadent, high-pressure music scene where they had to grow up fast and experience things that no teenage girls should. Her book exposes the side of the music industry fans don't see.--From publisher description
