amazon.com has nothing on the book, so it's too early to tell. Having been involved in deciding book titles for the media company I work for, it's also not possible to tell if she, her agent or her publisher made the decision regarding the book's title.
It's a shame that a few "former Catholics" in Hollywood have gone on to bash it. But, I have a friend who was raised Catholic like me, went through an atheist phase, and is now back to being Catholic.
Our friends over at patheos.com had an article about this back in October 2011 (a commenter there says she has an aunt who is a nun, so maybe there's hope). It seems the original title was going to be "Sinner: Confessions of a Recovering Catholic". Deacon Greg quotes her in an Entertainment Weekly article as saying:*Most young girls in my neighborhood played with Cabbage Patch dolls for fun. I played with Jesus, Mary, and Joseph dolls. I had every intention of becoming a nun someday. But hilarious events that unfolded in my upbringing made me question my future occupation and the contradictions I faced at home and at one of the most prestigious all-girl Catholic schools on the South Side of Chicago. This book tells the story of what went wrong, or, as I would put it now, what went right. Or as Hugh Hefner eventually put it, Playmate of the Year.*As I read this, it seems that she says of her upbringing that because of "contradictions" she saw, her aspiration to be a nun was "wrong" and going into porn was "right." The school was Mother McAuley where she claims she got her hair set on fire and was bullied there. I'm no psychologist, and as has been said, the book hasn't come out yet, but this story might point to someone who is acting out in rebellion against the symbol of the place where she had bad memories - i.e. a place iconic of Catholicism. ...that her lifestyle choices amounted to "punches" at Catholicism.
