I don’t remember when I first heard about Let’s Pretend This Never Happened, but I know I’ve been meaning to read it for months. It was definitely not a disappointment. My husband could always tell I was reading this over the past couple days/week because I’d burst out laughing on a regular basis.
Blogger/comedienne Jenny Lawson had a strange childhood growing up in poverty in rural west Texas. She certainly ended up with some interesting stories. Like the time her father brought home a bunch of turkeys that would follow her to school every day. Or when she was in high school and she got her hand stuck in a cow’s uterus.
No one was going to grow up to be normal after a childhood like that. And Jenny Lawson certainly did not. Let’s just say the love of taxidermy animals did not skip a generation.
If you don’t like profanity or are easily offended, this is not the book for you. If you’re looking for a hilarious read in which the author overcomes a lot of adversity in life, you should definitely get on the hold list for this one.
