BOOK: So Close to Being the Sh*t, Y’all Don’t Even Know



Available from AMAZON

Oh Retta! I think I have found someone who understands my fears. Like seriously… is she in my head?  Her love for designer handbags because they always “fit” made me laugh out loud because #PlusSize has its own share of struggles.  I was moved to tears during her chapter on her Hamilton obsession because of her passionate delivery. And you NEED to “read” the audio book because having her talking your ear is like a friend you never knew you always needed. 


Short Synopsis (from Goodreads):

In So Close to Being the Sh*t, Y’all Don’t Even Know, Parks and Recreation star Retta takes us on her not-so-meteoric rise from roaches to riches (well, rich enough that she can buy $15,000 designer handbags yet scared enough to know she’s always a heartbeat away from ramen with American cheese).


Throwing her hard-working Liberian parents for a loop, Retta abandons her plan to attend med school after graduating Duke University to move to Hollywood to star in her own sitcom―like her comedy heroes Lucille Ball and Roseanne.


Say what? Word. Turns out Retta might actually be on to something. After winning Comedy Central’s stand-up competition, she should be ready for prime time―but a fear of success derails her biggest dream.


I purchased this book for my own enjoyment. ⠀
