This was pretty good! πŸ˜„



I have the paperback but I listened to it on audio. She read the book herself and I love that. You get all of the true feelings when they read their own work.

I loved looking at all of the pictures in the book as well. My copy is a small paperback and it has those soft glossy pages that you love to snif. πŸ˜„ And all bookaholics know what I mean. I actually sat down my phone to sniff the book again while reviewing. πŸ˜‚



The book is set up in different sections as well. I have to admit I have ne we watched Parks and Recreation but I did add it to my Netflix to see if I would like it.

There is this part in the book where she is talking about back in the day. I was like, OMG, I should get out my old pics! πŸ˜‚

The eighties were a strange time for teenage fashion. We wore silk blouses and shoulder pads, neon earrings and jodhpur pants. Come to think of it, our pants were especially weird. We also wore stirrup pants, parachute pants, and velvet knickers. It was a real experimental pant time. We curled our hair and sprayed it until it was crunchy and high. We wore jewel tones and too much makeup. With the exception of a few naturally beautiful girls who knew how to balance all of these elements, we looked ridiculous.


Overall, I enjoyed the book!

Beverly I remember the eighties well. The dumb hairstyles were the worst.
