COMMUNITY REVIEWS

Really Enjoyable submitted by evie2017 on August 25, 2017, 6:29pm From page 1, I was hooked! Others compared this book to Mindy Kaling's "Is Everyone Hanging out Without Me?", saying ABG was a close second. However I liked Issa Rae's book quite a bit more! Her stories of growing up are painfully relatable and her humorous and honest voice shines through. I took this book on a couple road trips and it made the hours fly by!
