-Stacy London, style expert and host of TLC's What Not To Wear

"This aint your grandmas memoir...unless your grandma was a borderline prostitute."
-Nasim Pedrad, writer and star, Saturday Night Live

“Oh Shallon please. That did not happen.” 
-Shallon's agent, editor, mother, grandmother, and kitten

She is trying way too hard to be like Chelsea Handler. Chelsea makes funny racist comments but she doesn't mock people or use the n-word. Shallon does. I am not the kind of person to pull the race card and I 9 times out of 10 don't take certain comments personally. So for me to consider Shallon racist is a serious matter. There are far too many times where I've stopped reading and had to decide if I really wanted to move on. I keep thinking "I can't believe she said that!" Yea its funny and witty or whatever but Shallon Lester is NOT a good person. I'm upset that I bought this book and therefore supported her.

A number of my Facebook friends are fans of Shallon's website blog and notified everyone that her newest book was available, so I had it downloaded to my Kindle right away. It was a very fun read! So funny, partly because her life is so different from mine, but it is what I'd like mine to have been when I was in my twenties. It reads like a memoir with a clever amusing style that is consistently entertaining. Her adventures in Manhattan, full of name-dropping and restaurant-referencing, blend in well with her recollections of her growing up in Irvine, complete with references to Vista Nerdy, and Uni High Homecoming dances. The perfect book for anyone looking for believable escapist reading. Looking forward now to following her work online!

The brief description made this seem like a juicy tell-all that's guilt-free but super funny. This was advertised to me along the lines of something like Chelsea Handler's essays.

However, it's just an okay book. This feel more geared towards younger girls, like teenyboppers or young teenagers about to enter adulthood rather than a juicy gossipy guilt free read for adults.

With that said, Lester's tales are interesting and funny. It's an extremely easy read, I was able to breeze through it in one day. One afternoon actually.

Order took the usual time but the book was dented. I requested a new book and the spine was already dented and cracked. oh well I guess =/

I have been watching her on YouTube for a while and she's not all that great but she's doing her thing so I give her all her props. She may drop the n/word and that's just unprofessional and it doesn't matter what ethnicity you are . I relate mostly when she talks about her struggle with eating disorders and self mutilating , plus she's a mess . but the book I've never read .

This wasn't the funniest or best book I've ever read by any means, but I did find her stories witty and very humorous! I really liked her self-depricating humor and you can't find anything but entertainment value in her dating life! Would reccomend for a funny, light-hearted read
