Very funny and a good read.
If you've ever been displaced, have a read through this book. If you're a conservative living in liberal territory (or vice-versa), this book will be better than a year of therapy. This book was a bit like making a new friend--one who really, truly understands. Her frank discussion of being a stranger in a strange land usually makes you laugh and always gives you insight, and perhaps some brevity, into your own struggles.
You won't be sorry you bought this book--you'll just be sorry that the sequel isn't out yet!
Through excellent and compelling writing, Nancy draws you into this theme of diversity mixed with personal experience. For anyone who has moved around the United States and lived in different segments of the population, they will easily identify with her stories. And if you haven't moved around? Well, you need to read this book as well to increase your understanding of the wide range of views in America. I admire her courage in the topics and her honesty in the writing. It's a well-done book worthy of your reading time.
