This is the story of Janice, the daughter of a heavily medicated mother, and an abusive father, struggling to find her place in the world. Leaving home at 15, she finds herself sleeping in a homeless shelter in Hell's Kitchen. It's 80s New York, a world filled with prostitutes, crack heads and criminal club kids. But out of tragedy comes eventual redemption. In this disturbing and powerful memoir, Janice escapes the downward spiral and turns her life around. Her sassy New York voice is fresh, authentic and energetic. This is not only a Generation X memoir, but a valuable coming-of-age tale.
