Tellulah Darling writes YA & New Adult romantic comedy because her first kiss sucked and she's compensating.
Sassy girls. Swoony boys. What could go wrong?
The first time I heard Lindy West, she made me laugh. The second time, she brought me to tears. And with this book, I fell in love.
Articulate, insightful, intelligent, raw, profound, personal and hilarious, Shrill is a must-read. Actually, let me amend that. I feel like people will have one of three reactions - a shrug from the people whom this has no relevance for, sympathy from people who feel compassion for her struggles, and an enormous sigh of relief and recognition from those of us who have shared aspects of her journey.
Thank you, Ms. West, for this book. I wish I'd had it twenty years ago, and I'm still thrilled to have found it today.
