review submitted by yinan on August 29, 2017, 2:18pm The book looks very interesting

Funny at first... submitted by bookher on July 18, 2018, 2:32pm This book started out funny and I had high hopes but it just started to feel like major whining about how bad life is but she doesn't really care. I only read 1/2 the book because it was getting so annoying.

This is one of my favorite books! submitted by emilyhubbel on August 1, 2018, 3:57pm Irby's writing is both humorous and sobering. The book progresses from lighthearted observations to deeply personal accounts of her life. The book deals with poverty, disability, having an abusive home life, race, and navigating life as a black queer woman. The whole book is written in a style that makes you feel like you're casually talking to a friend, while still being extremely witty and insightful.

A Must Read submitted by jucruz on July 6, 2019, 3:44pm Her rambling style is so approachable and enjoyable, it gives hope to all aspiring writers

Read the audiobook submitted by sushai on June 23, 2020, 12:10pm Hilarious, heartbreaking, dark, and luminous. I identified with so much, cringed often, and laughed out loud more than I can remember from any other book.

Not for everyone submitted by chowcy on August 28, 2020, 4:53pm I wanted to like this book as it touches on some important real-life issues (disability, race, LGBT issues), but the author is a little brash and not for everyone. I personally did not like her negativity, but I can imagine others appreciating her real-talk style of writing.
