Summary Kerry Cohen was eleven years old when she recognized the power of her body in the leer of a grown man. Her parents were recently divorced and it didn't take long before their lassitude and Kerry's desire to stand out--to be memorable in some way--combined to lead her down a path she knew she shouldn't take. She wanted love--but not really understanding what love was, not really knowing how to get it, she reached for sex instead. This story of addiction--not just to sex, but to male attention--is also the story of a young girl who came to believe that boys and men--it didn't matter who--could give her life meaning. Her journey from that hopeless place to her current confident and fulfilled existence is a cautionary tale, and a revelation.--From publisher description.
