White Girl Problems- by Babe Walker - 288 pages
Babe Walker, center of the universe, is a painstakingly manicured white girl with an expensive smoothie habit, a proclivity for Louboutins, a mysterious mother she's never met, and approximately 50 bajillion Twitter followers. But her "problems" have landed her in shopping rehab--that's what happens when you spend $246,893.50 in one afternoon at Barneys. Now she's decided to write her memoir, revealing the gut-wrenching hurdles she's had to overcome in order to be perfect in every way, every day. Hurdles such as:
- I hate my horse.
- Every job I've ever had is the worst job I've ever had.
- He's not a doctor, a lawyer, or a prince.
- I'll eat anything, as long as it's gluten-free, dairy-free, low-carb, low-fat, low-calorie, sugar-free, and organic.
In an Adderall-induced flash of inspiration, Babe Walker has managed to create one of the most enjoyable, unforgettable memoirs in years.
My Review: 3 stars
If you want a light, laugh-out-loud quick read then White Girl Problems by Babe Walker is just the book. Immediately I was enraptured by Babe’s quick wit, sarcastic humor and egotistical personality. I couldn’t put the book down because I wanted to know what sort of crazy “white girl problem” I was going to read about next. The first half of the book was much more enjoyable than the second half because as you get more of an understanding of Babe, you realize just how sad and materialistic her world is and how little regard she has of others. Fictitiously written as a memoir during her stint in rehab; this book is a parody of social status and entitlement.
