    Twenty years after ruling the halls of her suburban Chicago high school, Lissy Ryder doesn't understand why her glory days ended. Back then, she was worshipped...beloved...feared. Present day, not so much. She's been pink-slipped from her high-paying job, dumped by her husband and kicked out of her condo. Now, at 37, she's struggling to start a business out of her parents' garage and sleeping under the hair-band posters in her old bedroom. Lissy finally realizes karma is the only bitch bigger than she was.

    What did you like best about Here I Go Again? What did you like least?

    Maybe it is a good story, maybe not... unless I buy the print version I will never really know as I couldn't listen to you Jen.
    Maybe it is because the narrator of your other books was good, maybe it was you were only bad in comparison.

    Hey, I have always liked your writing in the past. Maybe just spend the bucks and get a good narrator.

  • The Butler: A Witness to History

    When acclaimed Washington Post writer Wil Haygood had an early hunch that Obama would win the 2008 election, he thought he'd highlight the singular moment by exploring the life of someone who had come of age when segregation was so embedded in the culture as to make the very thought of a black president inconceivable. He struck gold when he tracked down Eugene Allen, a butler who had served eight presidents, from Harry Truman to Ronald Reagan. Forest Whitaker narrates the story of this remarkable man who, while serving tea and supervising buffets, was also a witness to history.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    It seemed this book was really just an advertisement for the movie. It was not enjoyable. Felt cheated by wasting a credit.
