Publisher's Summary

Author of the New York Times best seller White Girl Problems and Psychos, Babe Walker faces her most daunting challenge yet - suburbia - in the third caustically witty White Girl Problems book.

Babe Walker thought she had done it all. After all, she's survived the highly exclusive social hierarchies of Bel Air, traipsed around Europe in true white-girl fashion, and left her mark on several of the best rehab facilities in the United States. But now Babe is about to enter a terrifying new world: Middle America.

After a freak accident that was definitely not Babe's fault, her estranged mother offers her the perfect escape from LA: an invite to her grandfather's 80th birthday party in Maryland, of all places. Babe's journey throws her headlong into elementary school classrooms full of small, unfashionable people; pizza buffet restaurants that will haunt her nightmares; and eventually back to Los Angeles, thank goodness. Tossed together with her cousins - basic preteen Cara and mature and preternaturally stylish Knox - Babe learns that connecting with someone on an intimate, familial level might be the most rewarding experience there is.

Besides being thin, of course.

Hysterical, unapologetic, and as unfiltered as ever, Babe Walker proves again to be the "urban socialite you love to hate" (Time), and she can only hope the population is ready for American Babe.

Not long enough!

Babe Walker is always good for a laugh! And the narrator is perfection. Perfect beach read/listen.

Still good

This is the last book of the white girl problems series. Although it was not my favorite Babe Walker’s book, I still think this deserves credit and a chance to be heard !
