This is quite simply the funniest book I have read in years. I read it in 2 days and would have finished it even sooner if I didn't have to actually eat, work and sleep! Coming of age the same time as the author, and from the same general area (me/Long Island, she/N.J. - only about a centemeter different in 80's permed hair height...)really hit home, and I found myself laughing hard and loudly throughout the entire book.

This book made me laugh out loud. Although I didn't grow up in Jersey, I related to a lot of the 80's references. A light, easy read that doesn't take too much thought. A great vacation book. Hilarious!

I highly recommend this book. It feels like a girlfriend telling you one interesting (and usually really funny) story after another. I also enjoyed the celebrity insights thrown in here and there.

I enjoyed this book. It was very funny. The chapters would alternate between the authors life and childhood to her encounters with celebrities during her MTV VJ and Rolling Stone reporter days.
