Love this book

by CWhitman on Dec 4, 2009

Not for the faint of heart, Jim Carroll tells it like it is growing up on the streets of New York City. The story follows him through his formative teen years, involved with drugs, sex and basketball. If you loved this book, you may also enjoy his sequal, The Forced Diaries.
