I enjoyed this book very much. This is a peek into one chapter of Francie's life, narrated from her point of view. The issues she deals with are pretty serious, even bleak at times, but she tells them with such deadpan humor that it doesn't come off as dark at all. It's a fast read which pulls you in quickly.

A day in the life? A snippet of time? The IHOP Papers offers an intimate glance into one girl's life, complete with troubled romance, workaday weariness, and the struggles of becoming an adult. Set in San Francisco and written in a personal tone, The IHOP papers is a wholly satisfying read.

"Publishers Weekly Review" by , "Liebegott's debut novel is a coming-of-age coming-out in the tradition of Rita Mae Brown's Rubyfruit Jungle, but here, the portrait of an artist as punk waitress is more a celebration of sexuality than humanity. Twenty-year-old Francesca is a recovering drunk who finds comfort in cutting herself and harbors fantasies of her beautiful AA sponsor, Maria; her former philosophy teacher, Irene; and a soap opera heroine. 'I wanted everything: Irene's cheekbones, empathy, and wisdom... the sheer beauty and curves of Maria — and the impossibility of Hope from Days of Our Lives,' she confesses. Having followed Irene to San Francisco, Francesca lands a job at the International House of Pancakes, dreams of becoming 'the kind of waitress who can carry five plates on each arm and glide around the room doing a dance of pancakes' and works on her memoir about losing her virginity and never quite finding love. The Lambda Literary Award — winning Liebegott (for her book-length poem The Beautifully Worthless) offers strikingly lyrical moments in an otherwise frank narrative of a writer teetering between adolescence and adulthood."
