Take a look at Book 2 in my Summer Reading Series:
WELCOME TO HEIDI
by Heidi Clements
About the story:
If you ever wondered what 50 would look like on a former alcoholic tattooed shoe addict who eats cake out of her garbage can and secretly prays to her vagina to die on a regular basis - well wonder no more and Welcome to Heidi. This collection of stories culled from over 300 blogs and rewritten for your pleasure will take readers on a journey they never expected and perhaps never knew they wanted to go on.
From dating, to how to tame Jewish hair, getting a pot license at 52, and surviving what is perhaps the worst Hollywood job ever – Welcome To Heidi will remind you to laugh at life’s most inane moments – even when those moments are happening to you.
Welcome To Heidi says everything you wish you could say but can’t and proves that having it all is possible – as long as the “all” is shoes. Take a trip inside the mind of a sarcastic, dysmorphic, slightly mental, completely fashion addicted, single woman who’s trying to live the second half of her life with zero apologies and massive debt.
Welcome to Heidi – you’ll never want to leave.
This book has it all. It's funny, at times it tugs at the heart strings, and it is downright terrifying - starting with Chapter One: Happy Birthday To Mean. Aging is a brutal process, and Ms. Clements doesn't pull any punches about what is in store for us women as we hit fifty. I laughed as I read her roll call for the run down - flinching when I realized that at forty-something, I totally own six of the ten items on her list. (*mic drop*)
WELCOME TO HEIDI is for men and women of all ages. A handbook for people of both sexes and all orientations to not only understand themselves, but their partners, friends, and family members. It contains valuable insight about what life dishes out - ladies hold off on those expensive boob jobs till perimenopause - and we also get a peek into the mind of a brilliantly creative writer, woman, and human being. She exposes her ideas, feelings, and a few body parts along the way, leaving the reader with food for thought - sometimes recycled from the garbage can of life, but always with a perspective that is smart; urging us to wake up and find the funny instead of letting gravity have the last laugh.
I give this debut novel five bookmarks dipped in white icing - good times for those brave enough to look cellulite in the eye and say, "Hey thanks. I've always wanted dimples. Now hand me another ring ding."
