Staff Reviews


Let's Pretend This Never Happened is the memoir of a not so ordinary woman growing up and living her life by her terms with lots of humor. An instant bestseller when it was first released, Jenny lawson's first memoir has a story in it that just about anyone can relate to. And you love it, try her second book, Furiously Happy, and her latest, Broken, is out in April 2021!

“I just can't recommend Lawson's new memoir highly enough! However, my recommendation does come with a warning: Do not read this in public unless you want others staring at you and wondering if you've gone mad because you're laughing hysterically. The daughter of an off-kilter taxidermist and a mother, who, for the most part, turned her head the other way, Jenny has her issues resulting from standing inside a dead deer at a young age, growing up with live raccoons in the house, and being an arsonist at the age of three. Those embarrassing moments that we all wished had never happened? Well, Jenny tells all. Laughter really is the best medicine, so make sure you don't miss this one!”
