by Cheri LR Taylor (Caddick)
I originally posted some of this review on Amazon in November 2015 (right after the book was released), and it bears repeating now because I’m about to read it again. Yes it’s that good!
Cheri L.R. Taylor’s book needs to come with a warning … something like “Do not read this book in a crowded room; you will be forced to stop reading to explain why you are laughing until the tears roll or gasping as you hold your breath in anticipation of the fresh embarrassment coming up as you turn the page.” Or something like that.
I love how the author writes so I can see and smell the surroundings, and almost taste the mother’s cooking. But most of all I love how much I can relate to the insecurities and social bumbling within the story. This is a must read for anyone who often feels like a social klutz even when they’re around friends and family. It will have you laughing, not only at the story but at yourself. And I’m all for anything that makes us go easier on ourselves.
This book makes Bridget Jones’ Diary look tame! I think I can skip my next few ab workouts … I was laughing so hard my stomach muscles hurt the next day.
