Blurb: Before Liz Lemon, before “Weekend Update,” before “Sarah Palin,” Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle-school gym teacher. She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV.

She has seen both these dreams come true.

At last, Tina Fey’s story can be told. From her youthful days as a vicious nerd to her tour of duty on Saturday Night Live; from her passionately halfhearted pursuit of physical beauty to her life as a mother eating things off the floor; from her one-sided college romance to her nearly fatal honeymoon – from the beginning of this paragraph to the final sentence.

Tina Fey reveals all, and proves what we’ve all suspected: you’re no one until someone calls you bossy.

I got this book from the library in the hopes of using it for the humor section of the Eclectic Reader challenge. It’s an understatement to say that this book is beyond bad. It just is not the right book for me. I like Tina Fey, a lot. But for some reason this book was ┬ájust bland. I flew through 50 pages without blinking an eye and then set it aside. And I never wanted to pick it back up. Want to know why? The writing was so atrocious I almost couldn’t stand it. This book may be for you, but it’s definitely not the one for me.
