    A true life Valley of the Dolls with harder drugs This book is the follow up to The Sunset Strip Diaries, which was a great read as well It starts out with the ending of the hair band scene, and tells about what happened to the people Amy once knew It goes on to detail the true story of her adventures after that scene which are once again both disturbing and fascinating at the same time She becomes a nanny for a British family, then moves into a big party house she tries pulling one of her friends away from the clutches of some Heidi Fleiss employees, her roommate is running from a sugar daddy and needs to hide, there are girls going missing at the strip club her friends work at, etc etc etc it is sheer insanity and to read it was like eating a big ol bowl of ice cream delicious I felt bad for her and her friends in many instances, but it was awesome to spy on these people via the book There were several celebrity run ins mentioned, such as Leonardo DiCaprio, Matt LeBlanc, etc made it really fun to read She ends up moving to Aspen to get out of L.A., and I found that scene to be quite interesting as well great details throughout the book There is a death of one of the main characters, which apparently really did happen, and it is pretty shocking These L.A chicks led really wild lives Reading it is like you are talking to a friend, you feel like you know the author personally, which I liked This book reminds me of a Less Than Zero crossed with a I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell type of book There are lots of funny stories, but it is also kind of a melancholy commentary on the lives of a group of people living in L.A in the mid 1990 s.

    I just finished and I have tears streaming down my face I love this girl I love her for her bravery in telling the absolute honest truth about herself I love her for having amazing insight at such a young age I love her for her humor and hoodspa sp I am so proud to call her my friend I have seen the wife and mother that she has become and never in a million years would I have guessed that she had been through all of this She carries herself with such compassion and grace, although I used to tell her I detected a hint of an ass whooper in her God only knows what would have become of me, had I been dealt the cards she was dealt Amy, you give hope to so many people who feel stuck in their lives I love you, girl Thank you for sharing your story and going all the way with it It is the hard to read truths that made this book what it is Brava

    A quote from page 146 Los Angeles makes me sad It s like confetti covered quicksand You don t notice you are sinking, because there is always a party going on around you, so sensationally slick and fun Amy finds herself lost, not sure where to turn now that her party scene on the Sunset Strip has officially been taken over by the grunge movement Does she stick around and become a washed up has been, does she move No She does the only thing that she can think of to keep the party going she redefines herself and makes new friends who are tuned into the new LA club scene She manages to make herself an it girl in the club scene, and continues the constant party that her life has become over the past three years Her life is just as chaotic now as it was during the glam rock scene, which actually surprised me She s still hanging out with dancers, getting blackout drunk, obsessing about her looks, and having frequent celebrity run ins with people such as Tommy Lee, Leonardo DiCaprio, Matt LeBlanc, and Anna Nicole Smith She finally moves to Aspen, Colorado after having a breakdown, losing a number of her close friends, and trying to distance herself from her friend Birdie, who is now a full blown heroin junkie As she takes in Aspen, she quotes I half expected some yodeling son of a bitch to zoom by me on a bobsled or the Von Trapps from The Sound of Music to come frolicking over the mountaintops That made me giggle She quickly finds the party scene in Aspen, at which time she finds out the drug of choice that everyone seems to be doing there is cocaine One guy actually deals coke to his own parents His own parents Is this real life I was continually shocked reading this book, and I really thought after reading The Sunset Strip Diaries that nothing in this book would wow me the way the stories in that book did I was wrong.The stories in this book are just as ridiculous, which just goes to show you that even though the glam rock scene on the Sunset Strip died, Amy still found a way to keep her party alive It was kind of mindboggling just how much energy she put into completely revamping her look, attitude, and trying not to look white trash just so she could keep partying with the in crowd When one of her close friends died, I was a little bit heartbroken I kind of had an inkling it was coming, but I just didn t want to believe it Like I said in my review of The Sunset Strip Diaries , Amy s writing style makes you feel like you re right there with her experiencing all of this craziness first hand It s captivating, scandalous, and incredibly delicious.

    I was skeptical that Confetti Covered Quicksand couldn t possibly be as riveting as the Sunset Strip Diaries I was wrong I am lost for words and my mind is spinning at everything I ve read Both books have totally blown me away I think I kinda feel like I did when Luke found out Darth Vader was his father a curve ball I never saw coming The ending has given me a lot to think about.

    Congrats Amy for beating the odds How did your sister and mother ever make out I wish or sort of hoped that your sister would have seen what had become of you and followed suit.
