-Stacy London, style expert and host of TLC's What Not To Wear

"This aint your grandmas memoir...unless your grandma was a borderline prostitute."
-Nasim Pedrad, writer and star, Saturday Night Live

“Oh Shallon please. That did not happen.”

A number of my Facebook friends are fans of Shallon's website blog and notified everyone that her newest book was available, so I had it downloaded to my Kindle right away. It was a very fun read! So funny, partly because her life is so different from mine, but it is what I'd like mine to have been when I was in my twenties. It reads like a memoir with a clever amusing style that is consistently entertaining. Her adventures in Manhattan, full of name-dropping and restaurant-referencing, blend in well with her recollections of her growing up in Irvine, complete with references to Vista Nerdy, and Uni High Homecoming dances. The perfect book for anyone looking for believable escapist reading. Looking forward now to following her work online!

She is trying way too hard to be like Chelsea Handler. Chelsea makes funny racist comments but she doesn't mock people or use the n-word. Shallon does. I am not the kind of person to pull the race card and I 9 times out of 10 don't take certain comments personally. So for me to consider Shallon racist is a serious matter. There are far too many times where I've stopped reading and had to decide if I really wanted to move on. I keep thinking "I can't believe she said that!" Yea its funny and witty or whatever but Shallon Lester is NOT a good person. I'm upset that I bought this book and therefore supported her.

Bursts of poignancy usually at the end of each chapter have earned the additional star, particularly her observations on manhattan life. But reading her reeling psychosis when manipulating boyfriends, lack of graciousness in an entire chapter devoted to complaining about gift bags at charity events (seriously???!?!?!?!?!?!?), and a vague malevolence toward other women (save her girl friends, sometimes) that laces her attitude in life and the interactions in the book, makes me think "What's her damage?"

She does a good job though of describing the harrowing situations that are a cause of that "damage" but in no way does she seem to constructively rise above it, learning from those mistakes, she moves from one version of the same mistake to the next. It's not inspiring fare, really more if you want something to commiserate with to make yourself feel better about your own life, but I suppose that's what people want.

She is obviously intelligent, veering on brilliant in some moments before quickly moving into some conclusion or strategem that seems so insane (and funny! because it's so hyperbolic) but I can only deem as mostly psychotic.

I have been watching her on YouTube for a while and she's not all that great but she's doing her thing so I give her all her props. She may drop the n/word and that's just unprofessional and it doesn't matter what ethnicity you are . I relate mostly when she talks about her struggle with eating disorders and self mutilating , plus she's a mess . but the book I've never read .

The brief description made this seem like a juicy tell-all that's guilt-free but super funny. This was advertised to me along the lines of something like Chelsea Handler's essays.

However, it's just an okay book. This feel more geared towards younger girls, like teenyboppers or young teenagers about to enter adulthood rather than a juicy gossipy guilt free read for adults.

With that said, Lester's tales are interesting and funny. It's an extremely easy read, I was able to breeze through it in one day. One afternoon actually.

Order took the usual time but the book was dented. I requested a new book and the spine was already dented and cracked. oh well I guess =/

I absolutely loved this book! The stories are hilarious. At one part, I laughed so hard I had tears rolling down my face. I let my bff borrow it; she was looking for something fun to read and she loved too. Now, another one of my friends has it. It's an easy, fun read. I finished it in 2 days.
