The bestselling author of Kiss My Tiara returns with an original and entertaining memoir about childhood dreams, coming of age, ambition and family. Divided into three sections (Childhood, “Grape Juice and Humiliation”; Adolescence, “Not Just Horny but Obnoxious, Too”; and Adulthood, “Reality Says Hello”), the stories Susan tells are uniquely her own, but the themes she touches upon are universal. She reminisces about being the girl in school all the other girls were mean to (probably not helped by her penchant for running around in a tutu), growing up uncool and white in a Puerto Rican neighborhood, meeting Mick Jagger at a cocktail party at 15, and coming into her own as a writer and a feminist.
