    I've always thought it so interesting and peculiar that eventually every human will experience loss and grief, yet it is such a unique and personal experience. And again, people read nonfiction and memoirs about how to deal with loss, yet one person's coping mechanisms may be the exact opposite of w...

    First of all, this is the worst club ever and I would like to leave. That said, I did appreciate this book, especially after having a few years to adjust to my membership. My instinct when reading was to compare everything about the author's situation to mine. We were about the same age, our moms we...

    A warning to potential readers: don’t start this book unless you have time to finish it in one or two sittings. It’s that good. Spencer writes in an engaging, self-deprecating and chatty style about a topic that most of us will experience in our lives, and her observations are heart-felt a...

    I don't usually read memoirs touching grief but I knew I had to get this book after my own mother passed away two months ago. Kate Spencer wrote this touching and funny tribute to her mom and how she dealt with grief and the aftermath, things that I'm still navigating today. It's a bittersweet but h...

    To be totally honest, I know Kate IRL (brag) and read an early draft of this book (double brag) so you can take this review with NO grains of salt because, girl, I can be objective. This is a really funny, moving, vulnerable memoir about the biggest, worst loss in Kate’s life, and all the small...

    This book wasn't what I expected. I wanted it to go deep, but instead it read like an extremely privileged girl's life experiences with passages like: 'You know those asshole kids who have Christmas presents stacked so high they touch the top of the tree? That's us' or 'I grew up spending summers on...

    I wanted to love this book. I lost my mom around the same age as the author and I eagerly ordered it and read it immediately. Unfortunately I did not personally connect with the author’s style. I felt much of the book that she was trying too hard to keep it light and insert jokes because the to...

    Unfortunately, I am a new member in this club and I ordered Kate's book to try to find some ideas about dealing with my grief. Because the situations were very different, parts of the book didn't resonate with me but there were other parts that were very meaningful.The author has divided the book in...

    • Hi! English isn't my mother language and I'm self-taught, so, sorry for any mispelled words and everything in between.I don't recomend this reading if you recently had lost your mother. You'll hate the author. Just don't read it now, wait at least a few months. Then you will understand and re...
