Reading Davidson's book is like a conversation with one of your oldest friends, the one who will tell you that your jeans do make your butt look big or that the brownies you baked are overdone. Her essays are honest, candid, and laugh-out-loud (or snort-out-loud) funny. After reading her book, you'll want to hear more from her--I'm looking forward to her next collection of essays.
I attribute this book to an even better vacation!
The actual material... There were some fun spots. By the end, it was getting thin. Some won't like the... earthiness of the humor. It's just a collection of anecdotes; there's no story. It's a so-so read. I'd be more inclined to call it 2.5 stars, downgrading it because of the poor editing. It's one of those where you might pick it up and read a section or two if you have a couple of minutes to kill & want a little light-hearted stress relief. I don't think I'll be looking for more from this author.
Lela Davidson, the author of "Blacklisted From the PTA" could be your neighbor, your best friend, or you. Reading this book is like reading a friend's blog, or even her diary. Lela has an interesting life, living in several places that gave her a varied background to draw from. Humorous, with a touch of irony or sarcasm, touching, but realistic, this book is a collection of events in the author's life that will have you nodding your head as you recognize a day from your own life.
Well written and entertaining, My only negative is that it has no plot or specific story line, it is just a collection of anecdotes, and I felt it was like reading Facebook, a blog, or her posts to some other social media. This may be an emerging style, but I haven't fully adjusted, and when I pick up a book to read, I feel a little lost without a storyline tying everything together. But this is just my personal preference, and not intended to be critical of the quality of the writing.
Each topic is organized in a quick, easy to read format, so even the busiest of moms can easily find time to read this book during those moments spent waiting in the car-rider line, or at the doctor's office.
Thank you Lela, for this little gem!
