First off, I love this book. Yes, it's rock-n-roll and
jet-setting and glamorous and though it doesn't tell all, it tells
"Unrated" is a global roller-coaster that takes you from a dirt road in New England to the streets of Monte Carlo - and also deep inside the world of eighties rock, Hollywood and to the Playboy Mansion.
It also takes us, unabashedly, into the heart of a tough, kind, hard-working, hard-loving single mom. And what an exciting life, albeit one that has been tempered by some crushing lows.
Yet she provides a shining example for what any of us should do in the face of defeat and disappointment: We must confront our true selves and it is only then that we begin to survive and evolve and thrive again.
How proud she must be to have put this first chapter of her life into words. Not once does she apologize for being sensitive or emotional - and we, as readers, feel all of it deeply too. This is a tale written by a lady with a big heart and one who isn't afraid to let others see it.
"Unrated" is a blast and an important book (that surely won't be Carrie's last- she is a spectacular writer.) What she gives us is an incredible gift - that showing one's emotions is ultimately a sign of strength.
