Notes From Your Bookseller

If you love the CW cult series Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, which spent a couple of years on air and was full of zany comedy, singing and drama, then you'll LOVE Rachel Bloom's book. Rachel Bloom has a unique sense of humor and wonderful observatory powers. Little things in life which we may take for granted are not lost on Bloom. Her book explores many of life's moments which make her anxious and uncertain but it's leavened with her great wit and her propensity to sing it rather than say it. She weighs in on a lot of subjects, although the main point is — we're all a little different.

From the charming and wickedly funny co-creator and star of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, a collection of hilarious personal essays, poems and even amusement park maps on the subjects of insecurity, fame, anxiety, and much more.

Rachel Bloom has felt abnormal and out of place her whole life. In this exploration of what she thinks makes her "different," she's come to realize that a lot of people also feel this way; even people who she otherwise thought were "normal."

In a collection of laugh-out-loud funny essays, all told in the unique voice (sometimes singing voice) that made her a star; Rachel writes about everything from her love of Disney, OCD and depression, weirdness, and Spanx to the story of how she didn't poop in the toilet until she was four years old; Rachel's pieces are hilarious, smart, and infinitely relatable (except for the pooping thing).
