Gosh, cant believe that Kelly O. has got her biography or whatever it is! how old is she, 20!? How much wisdom can she present at this stage of her life? Unless its about the latest achievements, cos she's actually positively changed and doing quite well.
Looks like I have to have a read to find out myself:)

P.S. had a go with Kurt's diaries sample reading at amazon:)...looks cool and would definetely flip some pages to look for the drawnings etc., but read it raw as it is> NOoo way:)

From a quick flick through Kelly's book it seems like it's about her drug problems and being a teenager with low self esteem. I think it's aimed firmly at the tween market but it seems like a really good idea and not a bad read.
I'm still not sure whether I want to read Kurt's does feel kind of wrong. He never meant for anyone to see them.
