Little more need be said. Turner is brilliantly comical in the a vein of Sedaris and Burroughs. Making light of heavy topics, and elevating family dynamics and dysfunction to a high-art! Highly recommended...it will make you feel so normal.

Full disclosure, I know the author and witnessed some of the early anecdotes. But the truly entertaining parts are AK/Amanda/Mandy's thoughts on adulthood, marriage, and parenthood. She's a little scattered, but so real. I think that if you read it, you will be jealous that I got to spend some time one on one with her in high school and wish you could now.

Please don't waste your time on this book. I got the book on the many 4 & 5 star reviews that said how good it was and that it was funny. It was neither to me. You feel no connection with the main character at all. At 50% I considered quitting the book - but decided to continue, giving her a little more of a chance, thinking it had to improve. Now I'm at 80% and I'm done - I can't go any further into this book.

The author seemed to try to make it funny, but it doesn't work for me. The book is just little quips of this woman telling stories of what she is thinking or little things she did - mostly revolving around drinking. The way the book is written, it's like watching a really bad reality TV show.

I have to say this is one of the worst books I've read in a long time. The book was disjointed and hard to follow. From story to story - and even within the chapter I found myself going "huh?" at some of the jumps from story to story. The worst part was that these stories were not that funny. Maybe if I had a few drinks I might have found it funny, but as a parent this book was flat out boring. So glad I got it for free.

This book was entertaining and enjoyable. I actually laughed out loud several times. I look forward to more books from this author. I have already search the kindle books for more titles from this author!The wit was sometimes sarcastic; however the love for her family shines through.

Yes, this book is extremely funny. I freely admit that I laughed out loud on a regular basis. However, very often it was also an uncomfortable laughter. The author sounds like a well meaning, loving parent. However, she doesn't seem to realize she has a drinking problem that needs to be addressed. Instead, she thinks her need for alcohol is just an endearing personality trait. Well, she needs to think about what kind of a role model she'll be for her daughters once they have access to alcohol. And, by the way, children do not think seeing their parent buzzed or hammered is an endearing personality trait. At least, they shouldn't.

I picked this book for my kindle because it was a good deal and because it had gotten a lot of good reviews saying it was a laugh riot. Well, not so much. I can relate to a mom who doesn't feel like she's holding up her end in the "good moms competition." I wanted to laugh along with the author and share her struggles, emphasis on LAUGH. This book was only OK, simply because it didn't meet my expectations. Maybe this book is good and I was just lead astray by the reviews that were shared on the amazon site.

I put off reading this book at first since I am not a parent. I wasn't sure if I could relate to it. But for some reason it stuck out to me and kept calling my name, so I finally decided to give it a try. I realized quickly you don't have to have kids to enjoy this book. It had me laughing out loud many times. Her stories about her in-laws were the best!!
