Brodie Lancaster’s memoir is more a collection of essays peppered with personal tales and an abundance of references to pop culture. Not only is she well read but her knowledge of television programs, music, books, politics and movies is quite expansive.
Along the way Brodie learns many lessons about people and in particular about herself, for example ‘…confusing what somebody liked for who they are’. This lesson took Brodie years to learn and she often experienced it herself. ‘Our tastes may not reflect who we are, but they certainly have an effect on how people perceive us.’
This book will appeal to the twenty-something generation who grew up with MySpace and subsequently Facebook, and in turn they will be able to relate to the pop culture references of that generation. Brodie has lots to say and thankfully she says it well!
