My Life as a Villainess by Laura Lippman - I felt like I was hanging out with a friend as I read this book. The sharp observations, the humor, the general human foibles. ( P. 111 I managed to eke out an A-minus in gym class, thanks to written tests and the credit given for merely showing up and suiting up, which turned out to be a pretty useful life lesson) Amen - that's me!
p. 156 Books are by betas, for betas, the wistful girls on the fringes of things. I know this...currying favor with the brighter, prettier girls, who find temporary uses for my sharp tongue.
I enjoyed my double header time with Laura Lippman, and appreciated home run writing.
