By Crystal S. on October 17, 2013
Format: Paperback
I was really excited about this when I saw it on the recommended shelf at the library. Unfortunately, I laughed more at the back cover and the Author's Note than I did during the book. I don't think that I even cracked a smile. The book is all of about 120 pages, half of those being half pages and illustrations, and yet it took me 4 days to get through it.
