Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?

Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) by Mindy Kaling is a win-win situation.  You read a funny book, you laugh, you discover that you are secretly Mindy Kaling.  And by that, I mean I think Mindy Kaling and I are meant to be best friends.  You know, best friends who don't even know each other and live on opposite sides of the country and will probably never run into each other or even really talk.

Ok, back to the book.  Mindy (we are on a first name basis) puts together a book of essays about her life and her journey through show business.  Several of her essays I found particularly funny--if only because I completely understand.  The portion of the book where she talks about how she doesn't fit into sample sizes cracked me up and made me a little teary--only out of understanding.  See, I also have an average body type, which means that I don't starve myself and wear a size 8.  This means that if I were also to attend photo shoots that nothing would fit me either.  I won't tell you how Mindy solves this problem, but it's pretty badass and I am proud of my new bestie.  She is someone that I want to be when I grow up.

So yes, since you ask, I think it's worth a read.  I think it's worth a laugh, and I think it's worth you also making Mindy your new bestie, too.  Sleepover!!!
