Melissa Bank's humor and intelligence come across clearly in both the text and her performance of this audiobook. Once it's understood that the title is not to be taken literally (this is apparent with the first sentence), listeners are taken on an insightful journey into the early influences of a smart young woman. As Jane Rosenal becomes an adult, audiences see her life choices mirror those influences quite organically and with sharp-tongued wit. Banks has a great package with this audio presentation. Her voice lends itself naturally to her writing, and her own life wisdom is obvious in the aplomb with which she creates Jane's world. R.A.P.
