Loved the title. The book, not so much. Maybe you have to be in the mood for this kind of read. I'll try it again on a different day.

This book was funny, interesting and relevant. Read this if you are looking for something unique and humerous, it is a great upbeat beach read.

This book had me laughing out loud. I've read all of her books and they're all great but this first one is probably my favorite.
