Desiree Bowers, daughter of state representative Kathryn Bowers, has published a book called The Prodigal Daughter, about her journey from child prostitution and drug abuse to stability and a reawakening of her faith. Here's an excerpt: "Momma had gotten more active in her career, saving the world. She forgot that she had two daughters, one daughter who was already active in sex, even to the point of sex for money. I was that daughter, sex for money."

Though there is no official word, a sequel may already be in the works tentatively titled: How to Wreck Your Mom's Political Career in 100,000 Words or Less. -- Chris Davis Plante: How It Looks
