Editorial Reviews

Review

"I now have a girl crush on Babe Walker! Laugh-out-loud, pee-in-your-Cosabellas funny."—Tori Spelling, author of Uncharted TerriTori

"White Girl Problems makes me laugh a lot, and cry a little. It's about time someone drew our attention to the devastating reality: White girl problems are all around us . . . absolutely hysterical."—Susan Sarandon

"Babe Walker will be your new best friend and worst enemy. I loved it!"—Emma Roberts

"The epitome of the urban socialite you love to hate."—Time magazine

"A social satire in the guise of a memoir. . . . The most artful elements are the charming fashion illustrations peppered throughout Walker's half-million followers on Twitter and the public's bottomless appetite for news about real-life socialites like the Kardashians prove that a large audience for this story does exist."—Booklist

About the Author

Got this book just as something easy and mindless to read. It definitely served that purpose. When I finished I was left thinking "What the...? Did anything even happen?" As someone who truly enjoys reading for leisure, not necessarily to stimulate my brain, this book made feel as though I actually became less intelligent by reading it. #Crappybookselectorproblems

Format: Paperback
At first, White Girl Problems seems geared only towards the younger generation, i.e. twentysomething Orange County babes strutting around in Prada and Louboutins on their college campus, but in fact, this "memoir" appeals to anyone who loves to poke fun at the upper class' ridiculous, out-of-touch "problems."

For any of you who have indulged in watching the tasteless and tacky behavior of the Real Housewives and catching up on the latest celebrity gossip of Kim Kardashian and Lindsey Lohan, this book is a MUST-READ! But I found it particularly appealing because of how timely it is. We all love to live vicariously through the lives of the rich and the famous. Babe Walker is one of these gals. Though I love to read her ridiculous stories, in real life I'd probably hate her. She's the type that says, "You're either gonna love me or hate me." To which I will respond, "Well, I'm guessing nobody really likes you."

White Girl Problems works because we are exposed to these types of women (both young and old) every day through television and news outlets. The upper class no longer live mysterious gated lives. We all have gone to school with a Babe Walker, or seen a Babe Walker break down in tears in her limo on national television. Even in our own lives, we can relate to a birthday party devolving into chaos, our own fluctuating weight issues, the constant barrage of angry texts we send to an ex, lover or scorned best friend, and the inevitable phone calls we receive the next morning from a hungover pal saying, "I don't know where I am...come get me."

If Bridesmaids was the female equivalent to The Hangover, then White Girl Problems is the female equivalent to Tucker Max's I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell. It's crass, outrageous and laugh-out-loud funny!

As Babe Walker might say, money doesn't buy happiness, but I'd rather cry in a mansion.

A couple of observations:

1. I really, really wish I hadn't actually paid real money for this book.
2. If this is a "memoir" then I have a bridge in Brooklyn to sell.
3. Had this been a movie, I would have walked out of it on an airplane.

I don't know how I lived my life before WGP. Luckily for me, I never miss what I don't have. So, I just walked around thinking I was the only white girl on the planet with real issues. I knew this book resonated with my soul by the time I reached the table of contents -Problem #1: All I want for my birthday is for you to know what I want for my birthday without me having to tell you. I re-read the line to make sure I didn't accidentally pick up my diary - Like, GET OUT OF MY HEAD, BABE! I remember thinking "Wow, I can't think of a bigger insult than having to tell my "friends" and "family" what I want in celebration of my life" so that was a very powerful moment for me. The feeling matched that of a prisoner being set free to finally live the life they were destined to live. I was not alone.

I would recommend this book to anyone seeking a higher sense of self. This book has opened my mind to the theory that there are people, other than me, living life everyday. It has also confirmed that the psychos who wrote this - Tanner Cohen, David Oliver Cohen and Lara Schoenhals - stalked my life to get the material.

Seriously though, it's a great read. Very obscene. Does not lack in raunchy, life-like situations that I have, regrettably, found myself involved in. This is definitely one of the most offensive books I have come across and that's why I love it. If you are sensitive to, or don't find humor in, feminism, racism, addiction etc. don't read it. I am just amazed at the negative reviews on this book -- surely, a person doesn't pick up a book titled "White Girl Problems" looking to find intellectual writings on the day-in-the-life experiences of a coming of age woman in the 2000's. If you were, I can definitely see why you'd be disappointed with your misused 13 dollars. And that sounds like a #whitegirlproblem to me.

Was looking for a good laugh and unfortunately didn't find any in this book. I have never left a review before, but this book was so below my modest expectations that I had to leave one. To note: I was not a follower of the blog before reading this book. If I'm generous, maybe that would have helped, but I kinda doubt it. Babe is no Jen Lancaster...

This is my first review on Amazon ever because I felt compelled to warn others. Ignore the positive reviews; (sidenote: why is Susan Sarandon plugging this book and then also thanked by the authors in the back??) don't buy this "book." I knew I wasn't getting a masterpiece when I bought this but I at least thought it would be SOMEWHAT entertaining.

Nope. It's pointless, not funny, and irritating. Irritating because I just wasted $10. Wish I could return my kindle download for my money back.
