Georgia Pritchett is a singularly hilarious person. Her book is a delightful and perfect reflection of her. Its tenderness sneaks up on you and really packs a punch. What a magnificent read!'' --Julia Louis Dreyfus
Mordantly understated at times, delightfully sharp-tongued at others.--Kirkus Reviews
"This book is gripping....Lisbeth one of the most original characters in a thriller to come along in a while....wait, sorry. That was a New York Times review for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. I do love this book. Georgia seamlessly weaves humor and pathos into each wonderful passage. But it is nothing like The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo."--Will Ferrell
"Reading Georgia Pritchett, you think a) I wish my brain moved that fast and b) under her fierce, take-no-prisoners wit beats the loudest heart. I cannot wait to read this again."--Kathryn Hahn
"THIS IS REALLY GREAT."--Samantha Irby
"Very funny and honest and emotional...a really great read."--Matt Haig, author of The Midnight Library
"So funny, so insightful, so moving. Just gorgeous."--Jenny Colgan, author of The Bookshop on the Corner
"The delivery's delightful and as finely tuned as poetry or a tight stand-up routine. Her torment, as well as her joys, are readers' gain."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
Pritchett is able to describe the ways she feels--as child and teen constantly worrying, as an adult, struggling to find relief from her feelings--in a manner that is both relatable and meaningful. Readers will find lots to like about this memoir, especially those who may have experience with the emotions Pritchett details.--Booklist
Laugh-out loud funny at times, poignant and sincere at others, these musings on everything from childhood to motherhood are relatable, enjoyable and oh-so-welcome.--Zibby Owens, Good Morning America
