This book was mildly entertaining, especially since I could relate to many of the author's experiences. However, the book lost steam about halfway through. The writing is pretty shallow, and it seems like the author got lazy towards the end. Maybe her next book will be better.
Michelle Tea's debut spins a mesmerizing spider web of her life's little adventures. Part Mary Gaitskill (who has a cover blurb), part Cookie Meuller, and part Blake Nelson, her style wins you over quickly but has its own dark intentions. I especially liked the tone of the book and her unpolitical and honest observations about sexual situations.
Ms. Tea's zest for life and magnetism for adventure drips like honey from each and every page of this luscious journal. Grimy and gritty, Tea's seductive tales left me in the throws of nostalgia for my own teenage debauchery in Boston. A must read. Buy this book. Now.
