Shake those hips

If you recall I am a big fan of Soffee's first biography "Snake Hips", about looking for Mr. Right Lebanese-American and belly dancing. Soffee shakes her bootie in "Nerd Girl Rocks Paradise City", but to a different drummer.

In this memoir, Soffe chronicles her outsider life as a nerd metal band fan. She has big dreams of moving to Los Angeles and becoming a rock and roll journalist. Unfortunately she has just missed the hair metal band wagon. Soffee shares life on the bottom of the journalism food chain and her decline into alcohol and prescription drugs. As in "Snake Hips" she tells her tale with humour and honesty.

I will admit that I liked "Snake Hips" a bit more, but I'm happy to have read the first part of the story.
