Brilliant and thought provoking
This book will be a good read for punk or music fans but also for any parent, mother especially, who has struggled to raise or is raising a problematic baby/child with mental health issues and Nancys mental health issues were present almost from birth and until her death, her violent outbursts against her family, manipulation - and all this from the age of 2! You can't help but feel for her mum and family, who battled for her and to get their daughter better but with little knowledge of mental health issues present in babies/children in the 1950s all their efforts were met with ignorance and the finger of blame pointed firmly in their direction.
I shed tears twice, which is unusual for me reading a book but it truely moved me and i couldnt help feeling compassion for all, including Nancy who's actions were quite venemous and quite wicked at times.
Don't be put off because Nancy was was Sid vicious' girlfriend because the majority of the book is about Nancys troubled childhood and their relationship is only really included towards the end of the book when it becomes relevant.
Buy this book and you will have a fab read!
