"Lane Moore is a fool for love. From her addiction to romantic comedies to her tendency to form instant soulmate connections with strangers, Lane has a way of romanticizing everything and everyone. But her romantic nature belies a decidedly unromantic childhood, one that sent her down a long and difficult road. Lane considers herself an orphan, though she has two living parents. Her estrangement from her family was a catalyst for her to build a new one with a community of friends, comedians, and oddball roommates in Los Angeles and then New York City. With an intoxicating blend of dark wit and relentless positivity, Lane sheds light on an often-stigmatized condition and reveals how she harnessed and drew strength from her loneliness to become the creative powerhouse she is today."--Provided by publisher.

I could really relate to Lane Moore's feelings, and some her mental health issues. I did at times find her essays a bit repetitive. I didn't completely fall for Moore's humour, but it was a good collection of essays.

This book was not written for PatEe. I only took off half a star because I wasn’t ready for it to end. I highly recommend listening to the audiobook—the author’s delivery is fantastic.

Two hundred and ten pages of poor little me, everybody does me wrong, I've got so many problems, blah, blah, blah, juvenile angst. Puhleese. Just get over yourself. Don't read this drivel.
