Seems to be told mostly from Monica's perspective; still, a good read. I think the poor, naive girl was really in love with Mr. President.

"This is old news" you will say---BUT, it is not. This book was more than i expected --lots more and not at all what i expected. There is stuff in this book that i would never of thought about. The easy access to the President --so very easy, the ways of sneaking around and the amount of free time the President had. I was floored. I saw Mr Clinton as a regular man with many problems and learned of his real life "feelings" --or did i? i think i saw alot of real feelings in him--but i also saw that he was such a beautiful lier in ways i never imagined. I became to realize that Monica has a serious mental issue formed from wanting "her way" all thru life. She actually grew up quite privileged with wonderful parents, but she became quite the pest and possesive. I very much enjoyed this read, to the point of 3 in the morning still with the light on.

"But have we heard the true story?

Betrayed by Linda Tripp, Monica found herself a pawn in the power struggle between President Clinton and the Office of the Independent Counsel. As she waited to face the grand jury investigating the President, the media conducted its own trial of Monica, while her legal predicament prevented her from telling the world what really happened.

Monica's Story at last sets the record straight. Drawing on his exclusive conversations with Monica, her family, and her friends, bestselling biographer Andrew Morton paints a complex and compelling portrait of a generous-hearted but troubled young woman whose dreams of romance had unimaginable consequences.

Monica was compelled to answer the grand jury's questions, but it was to Andrew Morton that she unfolded the whole story of her experiences before, during, and after the White House scandal.

The result is a candid, intimate biography of a young woman whose life holds some surprising secrets--and whose public image is very different from the private truths revealed in these pages." amazon
