Jeneration X - Jen Lancaster (2012)

Jen Lancaster is back with another hilarious account of her life and this time she's decided it's time to grow up. In the latest instalment of life with Jen, our reluctant adult tackles the world of volunteering, estate planning, and home buying (and subsequently hosting her first Thanksgiving), all with the help (and grounding) of her level-headed husband, Fletch. Some of these grown-up activities stick, while others are relegated to the "I see no reason to do that again" pile. However, each provides a valuable Adult Life Lesson that Jen is all too happy to pass along to her loyal readers. As with her previous memoirs, Jeneration X will have you laughing out loud and shaking your head at Jen's crazy antics. We've come to expect a certain level of bitter, crazy, and skewed logic from her and Jeneration X does not disappoint. A fun and quick, yet satisfying read. (LEK)

Memoir diva Jen Lancaster is back with her sixth instalment Jeneration X. The summary says: "In Such a Pretty Fat, Jen Lancaster learned how to come to terms with her body. In My Fair Lazy, she expanded her mind. Now, the New York Times bestselling author gives herself - and her generation - a kick in the X, by facing her greatest challenge to date: acting her age. Jen is finally ready to put away childish things (except her Barbie Styling Head, of course) and embrace the investment-making, mortgage-carrying, life insurance-having adult she's become. From getting a mammogram to volunteering at a halfway house, she tackles the grown-up activities she's resisted for years, and with each rite of passage she completes, she'll uncover a valuable - and probably humiliating - life lesson that will ease her path to full-fledged, if reluctant, adult." Subtitled One Reluctant Adult's Attempt to Unarrest Her Arrested Development; Or, Why It's Never Too Late for Her Dumb Ass to Learn Why Froot Loops Are Not for Dinner, Jeneration X is out in May.
