5.0 out of 5 starsThe perfect balance of LOL and "the feels" in one great book!

I could not stop laughing out loud at this collection of essays chronicaling the transitional years of childhood and adolescence. The stories were hilariously honest, realistically relatable and made you root for the author with every awkward encounter. This is the perfect read if you want to feel like you are sharing life with your hysterical soul mate of a friend as you journey through the first days of school, your first love, your first reality check with situations like a cancer diagnosis, or having to call late into work because you got a menstrual cup stuck. While targeted at a YA books, I feel that it is a book for all ages where you can feel accepted during the perils of adolescence, be nostalgic of the "good ol days" and challenge yourself to live life to the fullest regardless of the lemons tossed in your direction. A millennial guidebook to life and all it's awkward amazement.

She is so real and so funny. Read this book and you will get a few hours of sheer entertainment. Somehow she takes a metaphor that could be so cynical and turns it into something real and feeling and honest. My boyfriend's not my soul mate, he's my carrot. This is so relatable and describes me to a T! Love this, love her, can't wait for book two.
Erin - I LOVED reading this book! I loved reading about your adventures and the amazing things you have done. I thoroughly enjoy your outlook on life and death. I laughed a lot and shed a few tears. I'm happy to know you just a little and now I feel like I know you a little more. Overall, just AMAZING - a must read for sure!

The first story was the best, I'm not sure who Erin is and why i should be reading about her life, the stories were easy to read and fine, the first one had feeling but the rest were just pretty ordinary.
Upon reading the first sentences in the very first chapter, I quickly became totally and completely sucked into Erin's stories for the better part of a Saturday. I thoroughly enjoyed the entire book, so I wouldn't have had it any other way!
I bought this book because I know Erin and her family. As I started reading, I found that I could not put it down! I was laughing out loud and couldn't wait to see what Erin would say next. Will there be another book? I hope so!

Well-written real life, sometimes hysterical sometimes downright crying stories of a 20-something who experienced cancer at age 19 while attending college. It will NOT disappoint. One minute the visual will make you lose it in hysterics while another will bring immediate tears.
Love the writing style and selected moments. She’s like a modern Alice Munro, but with in the non-fiction category. While cancer is part of her story, it is told in a real way. Plus, there is so much more.
