Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I have read many of her books. I am listening to this one. I should probably finish it to see if she grows up in the end. It's a sad reminder of the popular attitudes that are shaping our culture. Don't get me wrong. I like snark. But I don't like to bathe in it. This didn't make me laugh as much as I had hoped it would. So if you only get through Thanksgiving, try a few more chapters to see if it gets better.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

I have enjoyed reading Jen Lancaster's earlier work. This one was over the top for me.

Did Jeneration X inspire you to do anything?

I'm inspired to tone down my own melodrama because I can see how tiring it can be for my audience.

I am surprised I had never read this as a young person. What a beautiful story with so much to consider in contrast to current culture. The vocal work was done well. I could hear the different characters expressed through Rachel McAdams' voice. Very satisfying.
