From the Inside Flap

For most of us, it was just another horrible headline. But for Deborah Spungen, the mother of Nancy, who was stabbed to death at the Chelsea Hotel, it was both a relief and a tragedy. Here is the incredible story of an infant who never stopped screaming, a toddler who attacked people, a teenager addicted to drugs, violence, and easy sex, a daughter completely out of control--who almost destroyed her parents' marriage and the happiness of the rest of her family.
"Honest and moving...Her painful tale is engrossing."
WASHINGTON POST BOOK WORLD

"From the Paperback edition. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
