This book had me laughing from page 1 and was easy to fly through. However, at the same time, it is kind of long for the type of book it is, if that makes any sense. This is the first Jen Lancaster book I have read, and have heard this one is her worst. So my savvy logic would lead me to believe that I will enjoy her other books more than this one.

This girl is funny. The way she writes is how I imagine she thinks and talks, which makes it fun. She looks back at various amusing points in her life, remembering the outfits she wore. She tells stories of her ridiculous parents, her college sorority fiascos, jobs, food, fashion, and weight issues. The chapters are all short stories in chronological order and easy to read one snippet at a time.
