As charming as she is onscreen ... [Kemper] is always poking fun at herself, but bravely open enough to let us all in on the joke ... at times her corn-fed innocence is a tad unrealistic ... winning, delightfully described commentary with adorable gaffes any of us could imagine making ... The non-linear chapters make for a handy read to glide you through train commutes and waiting rooms—as long as you’re comfortable shedding tears of laughter in public.
Her essays, light and apolitical, do differentiate Kemper from the often hopelessly simple and optimistic characters she plays, but at her core, Kemper herself is darn sunny and sweet. Despite a couple meltdowns over lentils hidden in restaurant food, and Manhattan germs threatening to attack her newborn, Kemper solidifies her upbeat and humble persona with her first book.
Hilariously self-deprecating while maintaining a refreshingly entertaining and positive outlook ... a breezy read that has actual laugh-out-loud moments thanks in part to her nonchalantly sarcastic commentary.
