Format: Kindle Edition
*The Adventures of Sissy Van Dyke" chronicles the vibrant, queer life of Sissy Van Dyke. Van Dyke translates her experiences with clarity into language but, at the same time, does not denude those experiences of their eccentricity and excitement. This book is a fun but poignant read into a queer, multicultural world, through the eyes of the protagonist. Likewise, it could definitely be utilized in women's studies and cultural studies classes for educational purposes.

I've never been in a band, never worked in a music store, and have only been to California once, but Sissy writes in a way that makes her life undeniably relatable. Her story about her band, her job, her family, her relationships, and her dreams is laugh-out-loud funny in many places, heartbreaking in others (what relationship stories aren't at some point?), and just downright interesting! "The Adventures of Sissy Van Dyke" is an engaging and delightful read, and I can't wait to take my second (and third) trip through her story. Bette Midler said, in a review of the book "Beaches II: I'll Be There," that "Cee Cee Bloom is a character you'll want to follow forever." I say that the same holds true for Sissy Van Dyke. She is a talented writer who easily draws you in to her adventures, and makes you want more. I look forward to reading more from her.
