Let's Pretend This Never Happened:(A Mostly True Memoir)
Reviewed by- Andrea (2012/07/15, 07:23 AM)
After listening to “Let’s Pretend This Never Happened” on audio, I immediately googled Jenny Lawson. I had to learn more about the author who wrote this witty, funny and entertaining memoir. Better known as “The Bloggess”, she is cited as one of the Top 50 Most Powerful Mom Bloggers by the Nielsen ratings and has an impressive list of accomplishments. To describe Jenny’s childhood as unusual is an understatement, but it supplied Ms. Lawson with some excellent material. She shares what it's like growing up poor in West Texas, with a peculiar father who's a taxidermist. At certain points, I felt I was listening to a stand-up comedy show as she describes the antics of her unconventional household. Although the book is amusing, she touches on some very difficult personal issues. Her style is honest, humorous and straight forward. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and now follow her blog.Back.
