    1. I love Jen Ashton. Funny and entertaining as hell. Such ENERGY! Buy this book and thank me later. Big Daddy.

    2. I haven't received the book yet, just received notice I had won. 9/1/11Received in the mail yesterday, need to finish my current read but hope to start soon. 9/15/11Started Saturday and finished yesterday. 9/18/11Jen and Joe are best friends. They didn't start out that way but sure ended up that way. Everyone should have a Joe in their life, Jen claims. Even though he never fails to say the exact wrong thing and likes to brag about his "accomplishments", he would do anything for her, including b [...]

    3. Firstly, this book needs a lot of editing help. LOTS of misspelled words and typos. Secondly, this story could use a little story-editing. The stories themselves can be funny (it's basically wild tales of 2 best friends up for anything) but they're hmm think of that lady at work who tells a rambling story that seems to go nowhere for 15 minutes and then has a funny punchline? It's like that. The punchlines are great, but the build-up is a let-down. If they had a proper build-up they could actual [...]

    4. Jen Ashton's GIRLS DON'T POOP is at times entertaining, and at times borderline a bit disgusting.The author happily relates her blossoming from a tomboy into a young female (didn't say lady, and did that on purpose), including all the trials and tribulations of puberty, sexual experimentation, and young love. Her writing style is smooth and relaxed, and there are some definately funny moments. Just not sure I really needed to read every anatomically correct or hygenically accurate detail.Some of [...]

    5. The title of this book is what drew me to read it.The author has a male friend who is like a brother to herexcept that they get along better than siblings.The situations that these two get in are crazy and sometimes unbelievable, but still humorous.There was quite a bit of adult language, humor, and adult situations, which might turn some readers off. I have a warped sense of humor, however, and this book made me laugh several times.

    6. This isn't one of those books I'd tell just anyone about. It's a story of a girl and her best friend and the wild and crazy situations they've come to be in. It literally had me laughing out loud especially when Joe and Snowflake went skating You'd have to read it to see what I'm talking about And in the end, I definitely fell for Joe if I weren't already married, I'd definitely have "applied" lol!

    7. While this book had great ratings on and , I found myself rushing through the book just for the sake of getting it finished so that I could start another.Jen's memoirs of life are filled with many adventures that are fueled by alcohol and odd friendships. The phrase " Don't go there" is simply not in their vocabulary.The book offers a voyeuristic peek into young lifestyle just simply wasn't my type of reading.

    8. I was not too impressed with this book. It was a nice idea, and the relationship she has with her friend is commendable, given their poor social skills. It boils down to the fact that it sounded a lot like Chelsea Handler's "My Horizontal Life," only with a male roommate, and poorly written.

    9. I received a free copy through the First Reads program. I like reading memoirs and I like raunchy when done right. Use of profanity for profanity sake is not witty. I did not enjoy this read, just not my style. My partner read it however and found it to be entertaining.

    10. This book had some funny moments but not enough to make the book good. It was crude beyond. Nicknamimg someone poop because they are black?!?! At that point I wanted to put the book down but I only had less then 10% to go.

    11. Ok for a good laughI enjoyed taking a break from "serious" readings with this book. Be open minded and enjoy it. Not the best book, but it is worthy taking the time to read it.

    12. Puerile, uninteresting. I felt like I was the third wheel in a protracted inside joke. It wasn't funny or interesting.

    13. FunnyI liked the characters and found myself laughing out loud. Just what I was hoping the book would be humorous. Quick read.

    14. Great title. That's about it. Blah retellings of an obviously fun group of friends. Guess you had to be there?
