In this sometimes cynical, often poignant while funny read, we travel back in time to being in our early 20’s when life is full of promise and hope.  Well, except in this case.

Written in first person we get a comical look (and sometimes bittersweet look) at those early adult years.

Struggling to make ends meet, loving someone and losing them and thinking there has to be a light at the end of the tunnel sometimes soon – right?

This was a great read – realistically written with language that the author himself calls “pottymouthed” the language fit the story and I wouldn’t have changed a word.

Funny read – and I’m glad I bought it.
