I was supremely disappointed in this book. I ADORE Jen Lancaster- I think she is just brilliant. This, however, felt that it was entirely cobbled together from bits and pieces. It lacks her trademark "spark" that makes you adore her in spite of her general evil. (Love the evil...) I'm hoping that her latest tome, My Fair Lazy, is an improvement. This pieces together a series of "short stories" that take place at various points of her life. Having read her other books, I'm vaguely familiar with some of the periods that come up. However, there's no discernible pattern to her writing, and it jumps wildly from Girl Scouts, to Junior high, to College, and there's not really much of a conclusion. I suppose you could look at it as a realistic portrayal of life, but I wasn't really feeling it.
