We Thought You Would Be Prettier
We Thought You Would Be Prettier: True Tales of the Dorkiest Girl Alive by Laurie Notaro
This is the latest collection of essays from writer Notaro, and it's another winner!
I've been a huge fan of Notaro's work since reading her first collection, The Idiot Girls Action-Adventure Club and have recommended her titles to anyone looking for laughter, truth, and the trials of being a dorky girl.
If you haven't read Notaro, you must. Fantastic, as always!
My only note of caution: don't just plough through this book...it loses its impact if you just read story after story. It's worth spacing them out and savoring. :-)
