This is the epitome of a funny, friendly, chatty memoir, with Shafrir dishing on everything from body image and fashion to struggling with work, infertility, and punishing rounds of IVF ... Fans of Shafrir's podcasts...will love hearing more from their beloved cohost, while her direct and conversational style will earn her new fans, too.
A heartwarming and witty account of how [Shafrir] figured it out...on her own terms ... While Shafrir’s droll sarcasm is perfectly calibrated, it’s her vulnerability and writing about more difficult experiences—such as her struggle with infertility—that will keep readers rapt. This coming-of-age story raises the bar.
Reading through the first part of Shafrir’s memoir, it seems like she may have buried the lede. However, after motoring pleasantly along through the early chapters, it becomes apparent that it just wasn't very attention-getting ... The author's engaging writing style and persona can't quite make up for the ho-hum material.
