Confessions of a Counterfeit Farm Girl

Confessions of a Counterfeit Farm Girl - Susan McCorkindale

I hated this so much I returned it to Amazon after getting about 30% through. It was just THAT bad. It was occasionally marginally amusing, but I found it so hard to relate to an author who can't find anything much to talk about other than her highlights, designer clothes, and booze. I get that she's trying (*trying*) to be over the top and amusing, but it's a giant fail. Her attempt at humor lies in that stark zone between hilariously hyperbolic and wittily subtle. The best words I can find to describe it are grating and awkwardly self-conscious. Enough, already.
