Until reading this book, I had no familiarity with Handler. The great thing about this attention was that it was coming from all the older kids, who I always believed were my core demographic. After reading it I realized that no matter what happened to her along the way, she always told her stories in such a nonchalant way that even the most horrific events that would turn most people to mush didn't really seem to stop her.

Chelsea and her best friend Olivia move into the same apartment building as their co-worker Rick. Totally underwhelming and inconsistently hilarious.

I've seen clips of her here and there and thought that she was pretty funny and that Are You There Vodka, It's Me Chelsea looked like an entertaining book.
