Book Review and Giveaway

The Idiot Girls' Action-Adventure Club

by Laurie Notaro

“I’ve changed a bit since high school. Back then I said no to using and selling drugs. I washed on a normal basis and still had good credit.”

Laurie Notaro is a journalist who has entertained many readers of the Phoenix newspaper with her humorous tales. The Idiot Girls' Action-Adventure Club is her first book. The book is set up of different essays talking about different points of Laurie's life.

This is my second Laurie Notaro book and I thought it was hilarious! Yes, there were stories there that I did not need to know but she was able to save the story with a funny punch line at the end of each chapter. You get to learn so much about her and makes you want to come to meet her, when she's not smoking of course.

The essays go from the time she went to the doctor with a huge hole in her tights right on her crotch, to the time she was stood up by a date and how she got revenge, to her dreadful high school reunion, to her nightmare of "taking care of" two neighbor girls who would not leave her alone, and to eating at a fancy restaurant where she kept ordering bread rolls. There were many stories in this short book, but each one made me chuckle. It's a great summer read.
