As a returning Peace Corps volunteer, I found that I could relate to this book. While I did not know the author, I did serve in the Eastern Carribbean just after Ms. Hulskamp finished her second tour in the Peace Corps. I found this book to show that no matter what your background is, where you come from, or what you are accustomed to, the Peace Corps can be an unforgettable experience filled with hilarity, growth, and perspective.
When I speak to people about the Peace Corps, many have the misconception that volunteers are "tree huggers", "granola", or "extremists", but this book shows with great sincerity that even a "princess" can get out of her comfort zone and find true meaning in this crazy life!
I highly recommend this book to anyone, whether you are considering joining the Peace Corps or not, you will find a truly wonderful message here!

I loved every minute reading this book. It helped me to learn a lot about the peace corps experience and the countries this author visited. While some informative books can be dry and dull, this book was filled with wonderful, laugh-out-loud humor!

I have never been in the peace corps but I loved this book. Her perspective on her experience was unique and interesting to read. It was laugh out loud at times and I even bought it as a gift for friends.

Like a breath of fresh air, Ms. Hulskamp breezes into the Peace Corps, designer sheets in tow, looking for an adventure; an escape really, from her pampurred but dull life. She found the adventures she was looking for and recounts them with colorful candor that is almost guaranteed to make you laugh out loud. It is great fun to follow this middle aged woman as she finds herself and learns what an adventure it is to make a difference in the world. When is the movie coming out?

Being a person who is interested in the peace corps I have read many books on the subject and this is by far the worst on that subject. The writing is just plain bad. The author calls herself Queen others are duke and duchess. Just plain annoying. Read Monique and the mango rains if you want a really well written book about the peace corps or better yet donate the money that you would have paid for this book to the peace corps.

We read this book in my book group. All of us loved it. The way the author told the story of the places she went and the people she met was very entertaining. The writing is very witty and many parts are hilarious! It also gave us an educational look into the workings of the Peace Corps. I would recommend it to anyone.
