Nothing could make me want to read a memoir by 16-year-old Justin Bieber. Nor am I interested in Demi Moore’s life story. Or Anne Heche’s, or Laura Bush’s, or basically 90 percent of the famous folks who have released autobiographies in recent years. But Jaycee Lee Dugard? Yep, that is a memoir I would like to read.
