She's funny. She's fearless. She's Erma Bombeck in Carrie Bradshaw's stilettos. From swanky, seaside Santa Barbara, where carpools collide with couture, award-winning journalist Starshine Roshell turns a keen eye --- and dazzling wit --- to the puzzles and peeves of modern gal-hood. In this collection of smart, stylish stories from her nationally syndicated column, the Gen-X everymom mines for meaning in Pilates and politics, swing sets and strip clubs. "An exacting and lively writer" -- STEVE MARTIN "Her columns are so witty, wise and observant that I wish I wrote them." -- JANE HELLER, Best-selling author of Some Nerve and An Ex to Grind.
