★★★★★Creates a needed space
What a great idea for a book... Writing down taboo stories that you tell your friends after a few (or a lot) of drinks! I was lucky enough to be one of Heather's room mates long ago and her amazing energy has persisted through the last couple of decades and created something special and uniquely fun.R. Knight
A mixed bag of stories and poems that helped normalize my own embarrassing dating and life mishaps. Heather’s belief that stories connect us, and help us feel less alone, shines through this collection and as I laughed I felt the embrace of all of humanity and all the cringy things I’d done or experienced transmuted into strengths. Bravo.René
★★★★★Well written & just what we all needed!
Makes you smile and relate!
Loved the honesty and the concept is so new & fresh! We all have things to share that will make us laugh and bring us closer together. This compilation is exactly what humanity need right now! Love love love !Emily
★★★★★Heartfelt and Hilarious
Heartfelt, hilarious and beautifully written. I read the book in one sitting and found myself saying "Oh gawd!", laughing out loud and doing Kegel exercises...
Looking forward to the sequel!
★★★★★Laughter is the best medicine
This book brings a vulnerable side to the writers. They add laughter and insight into hilarious and sometimes sad situations. The authors do a beautiful job bringing you into the story and reminding you that being human is hilarious. Loved reading the book and reflecting on each story, character and experience.Julie
