Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (and other concerns)

Book: Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (and other concerns)
Author: Mindy Kaling

Review: Written in a conversational tone, Mindy Kaling (actor/writer/producer and all-around funny girl) takes us from her childhood to present day success in a series of essays. She hits on a variety of topics including childhood, summer camp, dieting, friendship, dating, and various work stories. While the stories were hit or miss, I laughed more that I thought I would. I especially loved her recollections of summer camp. I'm still not sure who the 'real' Mindy based on some of these stories (I was pretty horrified at a temper tantrum she threw in the writing room of the office) but overall, she seems like a fun, chick (very similar to her character on 'The Mindy Project'). 

If you are looking for a light, summer read, you might like this. 

Grade: 3/5
