Filled with witty anecdotes and catch phrases the book presents a series of short story styled chapters each having little to no relation to any of the others to the point where one would be reluctant to call this a novel. Part epistolary work the book chronicles the short and privileged life of Babe the daughter of a successful Hollywood lawyer and her spiral into retail melt down and her slight foray into the real world of the everyday man. Not since the movie 'Clueless!" have we seen such heartfelt shallowness. I write that this is a faux-memoirs as I was first made aware of this book from the "author's" blog. Upon further investigation it I soon understood that Babe Walker is actually the brain-child of a group of writers from the publishing house Hyperion. Which though slightly disappointing that she is in fact fiction is slightly a relief as theres no way anyone could (in a healthy life) live like this. Though she does appear to be a composite of various real life archetypes (such as Tori Spelling and Kim Kardashahian) and fictional characters (such as Clueless's Cher).
With little hint of an actual plot this is a comedic read in the fullest sense. It's a book you don't even need to begin from the start. If you're having a bad day and need a quick pick me up (and you lost your coke dealer's number) read a chapter or two from White Girl Problems. Truly a gem, I can't wait for either the tv series or the movie version.
