's review

it was ok

Be forwarned - you need to have watched the movie Sixteen Candles, watched HGTV religiously, read the Twilight series, know all the real estate shows and home repair shows and their cast AND have a subscription to US or People to get all of the REFERENCES (every line in the book) to current pop culture. Funny, yes. A book that will be quickly outdated - by tomorrow! Heaven help anyone who tries to read it without be familiar with the above - it wouldn't make any sense. It is like someone name dropping with every other word. I would expect this book to have a very narrow audience. AND THE FOOTNOTES - that has already been done by Lisa Lutz (didn't like it in her books either - annoying). Does this author have an original idea.....oh yes, the Amish Zombies...couldn't forget that! Her format is much better for her memoirs.
