Nobody around her seems to mind her habit, maybe with the exception of her best A teenage stripper happens to come across another stripper shooting up heroin and decides pretty much right there on the spot to try it. I really didn’t want to waste my time with finishing it, but Beauty Queen does only havenot bad, I read almost the entire book this morning.

I also found it a little strange that the author admitted to shooting up so much heroin to write this book. She apparently had no idea that she could get HIV or AIDS from sharing needles and she glovch that the worst thing the heroin did to her was make her crave ice cream.

I totally agree with your review, as you could probably tell from mine: I personally thought she was an over indulged spoiled brat who wanted the easy life, but didn’t think she had to work hard to get it.

It is written in diary format, which really helped me get into the very feel of emotions she went thr Llinda is one of the first books I ever read for pleasure, while in High School. Sadako March 13, at Except for the 1st withdrawl scene. Most of what Sam said about the drug use was positive in a way.

I know that is very strange, but every character in this book pissed me off with their crap excuses. I shouldn’t have, glovacy this book was so in depth when it came to drugs and exotic dancing but it made me really afraid to ever do drugs, and I think I kept that mentality since I still haven’t.
