It's always fun to find a book where you go, I wish i were friends with this author. She has a dry sense of humor, but like this morning on the train, laugh out loud moments as well. In a chapter on her nerdy Oregon Trail phase, "Like a precursor to the Sims, you were allowed to name your wagoneers and manipulate their destinies. It didn't take me long to employ my powers for evil. I would load up the wagon with people I loathed, like my math teacher. Then I would intentionally lose the game, starving her or fording a river with her when I knew she was weak. Eventually a message would pop up in the middle of the screen, framed in a neat box: MRS.ROSS HAS DIED OF DISENTERY. This filled me with glee."
