Let's Pretend This Never Happeend (A Mostly True Memoir) - Jenny Lawson ★★★★

Let's Pretend This Never Happened (A Mostly True Memoir) by Jenny Lawson....I don't even know what to say about it. You read through the intro, then the first chapter and all is fine...then you get to Chapter 2 - My Childhood: David Copperfield Meets Guns & Ammo Magazine and Jenny Lawson talks about wearing a dead like a sweater. You think to yourself....ok this girl has got to be making this stuff up, because seriously? But then I recall my childhood and what we saw hanging in the garage and although, I've never done it, I could see the potential of running inside a carcass as well. So then I was like..Alright, that's believable. So naturally, if wearing a deer for a sweatshirt is possible, then I guess the rest of her story is too. 
At times, Lawson tends to go off subjects and on rambling tangents that really have nothing to do with the story and one could possibly get confused or uninterested in the book but 1. you get use to it and 2. if you have a sibling (sorry, to through you in here sister) that has a similar personality to Lawson then you understand completely how blurting out your own credit card number (incorrectly) and polar bears tie together. Some stories were very disturbing (chasing vultures with machetes) and some were hilarious, that even when I look at the picture, I still crack up like crazy (Knock, Knock Motherfucker). I'd most likely read Lawson's second book because what other shenanigans can she get into? And major props to Victor, for not murdering her yet. Jenny - He's a keeper!
