A Piece of Cake - Cupcake Brown

I don't know if I'm the only one but I have this habit of buying books, starting them, and never finishing them. I picked up this book called "A Piece of Cake," almost a year ago, and I never really got too into it until recently. Now I can't put the thing down.
Its a memior of this woman named Cupcake Brown's life.
She starts as anormal little 11 year old girl and with the sudden death of her mother, her life takes a turn for the worst. No kidding, she goes from custody wars to foster parents to prostituion to drugs & alcohol abuse, child abuse, rape, pregnancy, gangs, guns, and on and on and on. All of this before the age of 17! The whole time, my jaw is dropped as I read further and further. It sounds morbid (because it is) but its written in a sort of comedic way. Its weird.
I'm anxious for the ending because in her bio on the back it says that she ended up working at one of the nation's largest law firms.
I highly recommend this one. Even if you aren't big on reading, its quite addictive.
