Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

I now have a girl crush on Babe Walker Laugh-out-loud, pee-in-your-Cosabellas funny. --Tori Spelling, author of Uncharted TerriTori

White Girl Problems makes me laugh a lot, and cry a little. It's about time someone drew our attention to the devastating reality: White girl problems are all around us . . . absolutely hysterical. --Susan Sarandon

Babe Walker will be your new best friend and worst enemy. I loved it --Emma Roberts

Babe Walker, center of the universe, is a painstakingly manicured white girl with an expensive smoothie habit, a proclivity for Louboutins, a mysterious mother she's never met, and approximately 50 bajillion Twitter followers. But her problems have landed her in shopping rehab--that's what happens when you spend $246,893.50 in one afternoon at Barneys. Now she's decided to write her memoir, revealing the gut-wrenching hurdles she's had to overcome in order to be perfect in every way, every day. Hurdles such as: - I hate my horse.

- Every job I've ever had is the worst job I've ever had.

- He's not a doctor, a lawyer, or a prince.

- I'll eat anything, as long as it's gluten-free, dairy-free, low-carb, low-fat, low-calorie, sugar-free, and organic.

In an Adderall-induced flash of inspiration, Babe Walker has managed to create one of the most enjoyable, unforgettable memoirs in years.

The epitome of the urban socialite you love to hate. --Time magazine

A social satire in the guise of a memoir The most artful elements are the charming fashion illustrations peppered throughout Walker's half-million followers on Twitter and the public's bottomless appetite for news about real-life socialites like the Kardashians prove that a large audience for this story does exist.

--Booklist
