BITCH IS THE NEW BLACK

HELENA ANDREWS

CHELSEA HANDLER

[Ashley– “This book had me laughing out loud on the ‘L’.”] The standup comic and host of her own show shares amusing anecdotes from her life. Chelsea’s witty narrative includes memories of growing up as the youngest daughter of a used-car salesman who lives in sweatpants and suspenders. She describes the dark period in her adult life when she stooped to dating a redhead. Readers won’t be able to stop laughing once they dive into the world of Ms. Handler.

OH, THE PLACES YOU’LL GO! DR. SEUSS

[Emily– “It’s the funniest book I’ve ever read.”] Carrie Fisher’s autobiography is jam-packed with outrageous and hilarious memories from her life. Growing up in a Hollywood family provided Carrie with plenty of entertaining stories of alcoholism, drug addiction and mental breakdowns. Carrie cleverly shares with readers the Christmas when she was given a vibrator by her mother and her witty, sarcastic self-comparison to Princess Leia.

[Iya– “Helena Andrews’s book reads like my stream of consciousness. I literally feel like she’s in my head.”] Helena explores the relationship between being successful and being a bitch through sixteen hilarious and heartfelt essays. Self-described as ‘overeducated’, she is a graduate of Columbia University and Northwestern University. A movie version from Grey’s Anatomy creator Shonda Rhimes is currently in production.

[Bee- “It’s been a favorite since childhood, a nostalgic companion to the fearless women on the go.”] “Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting. So…get on your way!” These wise words are appropriate for children and adults alike. This book makes a perfect gift for the student in your life.
