Recommends it for: Children of the 80's
Shelves: 2013, gigglers, kindle
Reading this book is like tripping down the path of my own childhood memories with a really hilarious friend! There were so many sections I highlighted because they were so funny, and the author made me remember a few things I'd long since forgotten. I feel a strong kinship with the author because she too has a strong love for Sizzler cheese toast! :) If you grew up in the 80's or just want an idea of what it was like, this should definitely be on your reading list!

If you were a child during the 80s, there's lots to reminisce upon. It's a light and easy read.
