Review

Inside New Jersey, May 2011
"Marie Moss and Barri Leiner Grant offer up a candy-colored reprogramming manual. celebrating the attitude and authenticity, the scrappiness and the sexiness of our native fauna."

Star, July 11, 2011
“Run, don’t “wawk” to pick up Jersey Girls…a field guide to understanding these beach babes, their lexicon and that Jersey joie de vivre, making it the perfect diversion for summer days down at the Shore.”

B-
I wept upon encountering your Dear New Jersey dedication/thank you/love letter. It surprised me, my own reaction, to the part of myself that I have mostly forgotten. My New Jerseyness that defined me early on: soda, not pop, pajamas (long a), and so on. The terror of Route 22, the roar of the Holland Tunnel, actually walking around NY and going to The Shore - were things that defined my youth and that my suburban Chicagoness did not understand. After awhile, it all turned to North Avenue Beach, Michigan Avenue and the like for me. I am a Chicagoan now. But my inner NJ is there. And I often wonder what my story would have been had my dad not been transferred in '74. What kind of trouble Cathy Mackey and I would have stirred up...

I miss my New Jersey. I had forgotten just how much.

Awesome book! Being a Jersey Girl myself I can relate to all the people featured in this CAWFEE table book! It was nice seeing all the places I have passed from I was a little girl to what I see today. The girls on the cover of the book are awesome, in fact they are my friends Kim Whitlock and Sara Pressey (both from Manchester,NJ) who are featured in the book inside on quite a few pages! This book is one you can read and look through again and again!

If you are a Jersey Girl this book has it all!! Great pictures of the Shore, it brought back so many memories of great times gone by. I live in Massachusetts and baby, the Cape is a sad, sad place compared to the Shore. Jersey Girls have all over the Cape Girls!! So if you are a Jersey Girl enjoy the memories, can you smell the sausage and peppers...

Great coffee table book loaded with photos and facts for Jersey-raised folks ladies. It's a must have. Each time I open it, I see something that amuses and pleases. Get one quickly, give it as a gift, and hear how happily the recipient responds. and get one for yourself. You won't be sorry!

I got Jersey Girls yesterday and read it from beginning to end. I loved it. Great layout and pictures and wonderful stories, articles, nostalgia, perceptions and interviews. I'm not sure which my favorite is, maybe Annette Rosario. Jersey Girls made me feel good about life.

Thank Heavens for Marie and Barri! Finally an accurate and heartwarming portrayal of New Jersey. This book should be on the shelf of every Jersey broad young and old. The beautiful pictures of both the famous and local girls make all of us feel like celebrities. What a treat to re-live our shared growing-up experiences and threads of commonality. This is a loving tribute to our beloved state that lives in all of our hearts no matter where we roam.

I have given this book so far to three friends as gifts and they loved it. I myself think it's great also, my only complaint is the cover. I like to keep it out as a coffee table book and why a girl with a belly button ring and a bikini had to be on the cover doesn't make for a very good table book. Other than that the content is great.
