Jen Lancaster's most recent book about the day to day accounts of her life keeps the reader laughing out loud. This time, she has delved into the oh so scary world of growing up in her memoir; Jeneration X: One Reluctant Adult's Attempt to Unarrest Her Arrested Development, Or Why It's Never Too Late for Her Dumb Ass to Learn Why Froot Loops Are Not for Dinner. Lancaster attempts to pursue adult activities in her unique wacky way although she really is trying her best to act mature about it (most of the time). From wearing a skirted bathing suit, to giving back to the community, to buying life insurance - many of us can commiserate with these experiences and laugh along. The reader will join Lancaster on her entertaining path to adulthood while she experiences her first mammogram and makes the grown-up leap into purchasing her first home in the suburbs. Additionally, each essay ends with a witty Reluctant Adult Lesson Learned such as, "If you're in the midst of a midlife crisis, you could buy a convertible, have an affair or upgrade your cup size. But you'll probably be happiest if you save a dog's life." The book is comprised of many short entries with some reading like a blog which makes sense considering some of these were taken from her blog www.jennsylvania.com.
This latest installment highlighting the zany but true experiences in Jen & husband Fletch's life is such an entertaining read, it was difficult to put down. If you have enjoyed Lancaster's other books, her blog or just like poking fun at others be sure to pick up or reserve a copy of Jeneration X at your local library.
