Loved the interview ! This sounds like a wonderful story love that it is humerous and glad you cleared up peoples concerns about chuld abuse.This is going on my wish list !


I enjoyed this interesting interview. Jessica gave her point of view about her crazy childhood which was fun. It was based on truth although the book was the fictionalized version.

This sounds like a great story. I liked the part of the conversation where both of you questioned "what kind of household did you grow up in? Mine felt normal." Society's views towards things like smoking and drinking parents have evolved into being taboo. I look forward to reading this book and laughing. The evolving of the family structure as the kids grow and move away but then come back sounds like a good read.


an intriguing interview which introduced me to this author and her experience within her family. her honesty and sense of humor were refreshing. This would be a pleasure to read.

I've read both of Jessica Anya Blau's books and would recommend them. Her writing style reminds me of Anne Lamott as she has a scathingly honest and open approach to story-telling as fictionalized autobiography. Alternatingly jaw dropping and hilarious while examining family relationships and rites of passage.

Janet Oberfoell

I loved the topic of this chat, now I'm very inspired to read this book. Family dynamics are very complicated, I think she chatted about her life in a very open-minded way.


The reality of families! I really enjoyed the discussion about smoking during pregnancy. Can't wait to read the book.

Deon Jenkins was the mastermind, Saybolt said. He was the leader of the crew. Saybolt conceded that the government can't prove how Jenkins put the murder together -- but his comment just after the shooting -- that "bitch-ass niggas gonna stop playin' with" him -- shows that he viewed this as his beef. And, Saybolt noted, Jenkins as much as admitted his role in the murder in 2009, when he told other T Street crew members they needed to kill Boo's counsin just like they killed Boo.

Who is Book Club Girl?

  • Book Club Girl is: a member of a book club and an avid reader who spent most of her childhood immersed in a book, an English major who considered library school until she realized it was all about computers, so turned to publishing, where she now works (but she vows to talk about books from all over and not to simply flog those from her own house). She was single, lived in the city, met a man, moved to the 'burbs, and is now a wife, a stepmother, a mother, and in her spare time, a fledgling blogger dedicated to sharing great books, news and tips with book club girls everywhere.

My Review Policy

  • I review fiction and nonfiction that is appropriate for book clubs. This includes literary and some women's commercial fiction as well as memoir and narrative nonfiction. I do not review self-help, thrillers, mysteries, horror, or fantasy. I have a fondness for YA literature and while the blog is not devoted to it (well, except for my obsession with the Betsy-Tacy series), I will occasionally review some YA books. The best way to reach me to request a review is to email me at bookclubgirl AT gmail DOT com.
