If you’re one of the hundreds of thousands who devoured Babe Walker’s New York Times best-selling novel White Girl Problems or one of the million people who read her blog or follow her on Twitter daily, then you’ve obviously been waiting with bated breath for her hilarious follow-up novel, Psychos.
Fresh from a four-month stint in rehab for her "alleged" shopping addiction, Babe Walker returns home to Bel Air 10 pounds lighter (thanks to a stomach virus), having made amends (she told a counselor with bad skin she was smart) and confronted her past (after meeting her birth mother for the first time - a fashion model turned farmer lesbian). Although delighted to be home and determined to maintain her hard-won inner peace, Babe now faces a host of outside forces seemingly intent on derailing her path to positive change. Not only is she being trailed by an anonymous stalker, but she’s also reunited with the love of her life, a relationship that she cannot seem to stop self-sabotaging.
Babe’s newfound spirituality, coupled with her faith in the universe and its messages, leads her all over the world: Shoulder dancing in Paris, tripping out in Amsterdam, and hooking up in the Mediterranean, only to land her back in New York City, forced to choose between a man who is perfect in every way (except for one small detail) and a man who could be The One if only he didn’t drive Babe to utter insanity.
Unapologetic and uproarious, Psychos is the send-up of the season - already as timeless as vintage Dior.

Loving books :) Quick and honest reviews.
The characters, the story, everything about this book made it enjoyable. I am ready for more Babe Walker books.
Great story for some laughs and change of pace.
She portrays the character well.
The funeral for Babette was hilarious.
This book did not disappoint!! This a great book for a fun read. I am not sure all spoiled white rich girls could be this entertaining, Babe pulls it off.
Easy light beach book; follow up to the original white girl problems book. Don't thought proving writing. It's just cute.
As someone who commutes to/from work and sits in traffic, this is such an enjoyable book to listen to. I was laughing my butt off in the car as I listened to the story. What a riot!
Babe Walker, of course! She is just a funny somewhat relatable character. I mean, really, we all get our ditsy moments here and there.
I love how Tavia Gilbert really gets into her character. The fluctuation in her voice also makes the story come alive.
It made me laugh... a lot!
I loved white girl problems and this is just as good. I read a lot of serious stuff, non fiction, marketing, business, finance, personal development, and nutrition science so sometimes my brain needs a break and this book is just what the dr ordered!
I read White Girl Problems and really enjoyed it, however I just couldn't get into Psychos. So, I'm not sure if I'd try another go at Babe Walker.
I couldn't even get through the entire book. I stopped listening because I just could not do it anymore.
I actually liked the narrator, so my dislike for this book had nothing to do with her.
I liked how Babe was trying to become a better person, but it still wasn't enough to hold my interest.
I'm not really sure what the issue was with this book, I guess it just wasn't for me.
Probably not, I love babe Walker but you can only take so much of her as she has a BIG personality. :)
The ending! I was shocked.
Her narration is per-fect. The emphasis on syllables and her tempo reflect the emotion in Babe's words.
I laughed. A lot.
I read White Girl Problems and bought Psychos to find out, really, if she finds love. (Robert?)
It was a great continuation of WGP and I loved it.
I loved that there was an unexpected twist at the end. It was just as funny, if not funnier than White Girl Problems! Babe never disappoints!!
