Publisher's Summary

You'll Grow Out of It hilariously and candidly explores the journey of the 21st-century woman.

As both a tomboy and a late bloomer, comedian Jessi Klein grew up feeling more like an outsider than a participant in the rites of modern femininity.

In You'll Grow Out of It, Klein offers - through an incisive collection of real-life stories - a relentlessly funny yet poignant take on a variety of topics she has experienced along her strange journey to womanhood and beyond. These include her "transformation from Pippi Longstocking-esque tomboy to are-you-a-lesbian-or-what tom man", attempting to find watchable porn, and identifying the difference between being called "ma'am" and "miss" ("miss sounds like you weigh 99 pounds").

Raw, relatable, and consistently hilarious, You'll Grow Out of It is a one-of-a-kind book by a singular and irresistible comic voice.

    Story
    "I like this woman so much!"
    What did you love best about You'll Grow Out of It?

    Her honesty.


    What did you like best about this story?

    She didn't omit anything that I would have been curious about if she hadn't included it! She bravely went all the way there.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I suppose I'd have to choose The Cad chapter; the condom incident as related to Terry Gross was my introduction to Jessi and her book. I loved working through her process of learning that she is a true comedian. Jesters and music keep us sane.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    She Didn't Grow Out of It (and I'm glad).


    Any additional comments?

    As a 72-year old woman, I felt especially privileged to be part of Jessi's audience.

    "Everything you are thinking said out loud!!!"

    Love this book! She takes the words out of my mouth and finally, I feel like my thoughts are NORMAL(?) I am not alone in my head!!! Reminiscent of Nora Ephron!

    "Why couldn't it be longer?"

    I had to think of errands to run, workouts to extend, and all sorts of other excuses to keep listening to this book. It is awesome! Laughing out loud funny, but still authentic and relatable. I really thoroughly enjoyed this book, so much so that I will miss listening to it - hence the title. Well done!

    Story
    "I liked it."

    This book was very relatable in some parts, but completely unrelatable in other parts. However, even the unrelatable parts were entertaining. Because even though I'll never go to some of the world class spas and hotels she describes, it was entertaining to hear how the upper class lives. There's also many parts on failed relationships, good relationships, career choices, and generally about being a woman that are so honest, funny and relatable. Having the author read her own work definitely adds a lot of charm to this book. I liked it a lot. I want to be her poor little wolf friend.

    Story
    "40?! Try 60!."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely. After 40 women are all basically the same age. There was very little in this book any woman well into the Ma'm phase would not identify with.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of You'll Grow Out of It?

    The embarrassing, cringe inducing, achingly familiar complete awfulness of dating a man that wears loafers without socks. Are they stamped out of a mold on an undiscovered planet that might be called Tasselvania?


    What does Jessi Klein bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Her voice obviously. If a memoir, autobiography,etc is read by the author I always choose to listen. If that person is also hysterically funny all the better. I will still buy the book, It is hard to find especially juicy passages in the audio books..


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I did, although I wasn't sitting. I was gardening, walking my dog, hanging out the laundry, all the while laughing like a crazy woman.


    Any additional comments?

    Thank you Jessi Klein and take comfort that you are stil 20 years from flyers offering cremation services.

    "I'm super excited I have a new best friend!!!!"
    Where does You'll Grow Out of It rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I'd rate like this: #1 Sederis #2 Fey #3 Ephron #4 KLEIN #5 & #5.5 Reichl / Huston. Not on the list: That girl who wrote Sweet/Bitter.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of You'll Grow Out of It?

    Just one??? Uh ok - wolves vs. poodles.


    What does Jessi Klein bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I know it sounds crazy b/c I've never even met Jessi and yet WE ARE THE SAME. I really would like to text her to check in on her but um I dropped my phone in the toilet and lost all my numbers. Does anyone have it? Please DM me.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    yes


    Any additional comments?

    No but seriously Brava Jessi Klein - a great book, well read. Honest and real, great delivery, feels like you're listening to a pal but you don't have to talk back to her. A+.

    "Great!!"

    Jessi Klein is a rare find, poignant, yet realistic. Self deprecating, yet tough. Laugh out loud funny, yet touching. I thoroughly enjoyed every second of the book. Narration is flawless, as she has a great speaking voice. Highly recommend.

    "Fun story!"

    I really enjoyed this book, and thought Jessi Klein's narration was witty, wry, and added a lot to her story. From dating, to finding her way professionally, to eventually marriage and a son, she made me laugh, gasp, and at the end even get a little teary. What a gift for her to share her journey.

    Highly recommend, and very entertaining.

    Story
    "It's not really funny. It's sad in a lot of Places"

    I can't really say I enjoyed the book. It was mostly just so personal it was hard to... It wasn't horrible, or even bad, just, all the people saying "this is the funniest book I've read",had me thinking more bossypants and not that kind of girl. But it's not bad. Just not that funny.

    "Chick-lit"

    Well written, entertaining, easy listen although disappointingly plays heavily into clichéd female themes and insecurities.
