If every story has a moral, I wasn't aware of it! I was laughing too hard to let one register. It is so refreshing to read stories written by real people, by both new and professional writers, who are not afraid to share some of their less-than-brilliant moments. It's good to know that I am not the only who had more than a few of those moments.
This book in the new Not Your Mother's Book series gets a thumbs-up and five stars from me!
Can you remember the things you did as a kid? The adventures, the friendships and the plain outright stupidity that has you wondering what you were thinking. Not Your Mother's Book...On Being a Stupid Kid takes you down memory lane with stories that we can all relate to. With the contributors of this book being based in America I was surprised at how kids worldwide are all the same. Pranks may differ slightly due to the climate and resources available but one thing is for sure.....all kids do things that are really stupid!
I must admit I didn't laugh as hard when reading On Being a Stupid Kid as I did with On Being a Woman, it was just down right hilarious. On Being a Stupid Kid has it funnies and it's more serious, boy! can I relate to that, stories. I found this book a trip down memory lane that took me back to places I had forgotten and memories that made me smile. This is the wonderful thing I am finding with this NYMB anthology. Each book and each story has something different to offer its reader based on their age and experiences. Consisting of real life stories written by individuals 18 years and older, NYMB is tailored for a mature readership, allowing its contributors to tell their story how it was. Providing this scope allows for a book of short stories that holds interest and brings the world to life.Read more ›
This book is filled with stories that make you smile, get you to laugh, and take you to a time that was more relaxed. In today's over communicated world filled with fake celebrities who are only famous for being famous, this book is a transport back to a better time....with a smile on your face.

We've all been stupid kids. We've performed some pretty crazy antics, but most of us are still too afraid to tell. The stories in this book are written by those who aren't afraid. Read morePublished on February 3, 2013 by Amazon Customer
