    Story
    (96)

    In her hilarious New York Times best seller You’ll Never Blue Ball in This Town Again, Heather McDonald recounted her adventures as an unwilling virgin in Hollywood. Now happily married with three wonderful kids, she shows that life as a grown-up - even a pretend grown-up - has its challenges. Heather’s a working mom with parents who live next door, a sister who keeps asking for one of her still-fertile eggs, and friends who are up to more hijinks than even Heather can handle.

    Edward says: "Very hard to listen to!"
    "Not at all like Tina Fey.... I've been led astray"

    Would you try another book from Heather McDonald and/or Heather McDonald?

    I don't think I would read another one of Heather's books.


    What could Heather McDonald have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I just didn't care for the subject matter.


    Which character – as performed by Heather McDonald – was your favorite?

    Heather of course.


    What character would you cut from My Inappropriate Life?

    Any and all mentions of "housewives"


    Any additional comments?

    Let me start out by saying that Heather McDonald was super funny during this book and I did find myself laughing, particularly when talking about the shenanigans with Chelsea and her coworkers. However, this book is not at all like Bossypants. While the previously mentioned Tina Fey masterpiece left me laughing, feeling empowered as a woman and overall just inspired, this book made me feel sad. The endless blather of "the housewives" and juicy gossip of other people's tragic lives started to really wear on me after a while. These petty, mildly amusing stories juxtaposed with stories of being a dedicated church goer and trying to be a better mom than everyone else she decides to have in her social circle left me feeling like this book pretty much describes what's wrong with America.
