My Teaser:

She could have been a role model for every woman my age who was finally embracing her orgasms and her sisters, letting her breasts go free, getting an education, a job, a female lover. I could have made a statement.

  2. I've never read one whole book about Marilyn Monroe. I'll bet there is a lot I don't know. I always wanted to read "Blonde" by Joyce Carol Oates. I'll bet this is a good memoir.

  4. When I was younger I used to be fascinated by Marilyn Monroe. She was such a complicated person - so much more than her image.

  5. As I was reading your teaser, I was wondering who she was talking about but looking at the title it makes sense now.

  8. When I think of this blonde beauty, I think of her standing over a grate in the road with the skirt of her dress billowing around her. She was a beauty indeed but there's definitely a lot we don't know about her. This should be an interesting read.
