So like anyone would, when she finally gets her therapist to convince her mother to pay for the security and a few months rent of an apartment for her, she gets a job stripping at a club called the Web. It all goes downhill for Sam from there. The next thing that bugged me was that She apparently had no idea that she could get HIV or AIDS from sharing needles and she thought that the worst thing the heroin did to her was make her crave ice cream. On a more personally insulting note, she described Saskatoon as, and this is a quote straight from the book, "Saskatoon, Canada, a few hundred miles west of Toronto.

Sam is a 19 year-old MC who has so many dysfunctional relationships: a drunken alcoholic mom, a step-dad who is obviously a creepy pervert, an absent biological father, and so she insinuates herself into a life of stripping and a "beautiful" relationship with heroin, which is considered one of, if not the most, difficult drugs to get off of.
I really would give it a 2. I liked how the book was written in a diary format, it was edgy, realistic, and heart warming. I felt that Sam was my dear friend and reading her tragic herion abuse my heart went out to her.
She had such a kind, gentle soul and alls she wanted in life was a nice home her and her beloved cat could share. One thing leads to another and next thing you Beauty Queen, Beauty Queen, Beauty Queen, my goodness was this an amazing book. She had so many things going for her, money, friends who took care of her, and a contagious spirit. When she meets the man who she thinks she falls in love with you just want to stop her from getting hurt. The end, was so unexpected.
I mean to just leave the women you supposedly love and want marry with a plane ticket and bag waiting at the front door is unheard of.
