Those who know me, know I’m not a celebrity gossip person. I don’t follow the Kardashians or the Biebers and I couldn’t be happier. I did however start watching The Social sometime last year, I oringinally thought it would just be another View but I actually really enjoyed it. That’s when I learned about Lainey (apparently she does lots in the gossip world but I never would have known). I occasionally find a lot of similarities with her so was curious when she said she was writing a book.
“Listen to the Squawking Chicken” is a memoir about her and her mother. She recalls a number of stories from throughout her life involving her often over-baring mother. In addition to exploring her mother-daughter relationship, she also discusses a lot of what it means to be a first-generation Canadian and how growing up for her was often difficult because of cultural differences. The novel is very short at under 160 pages and is a very easy read, I finished it in less than a day and really enjoyed it. The book is funny, touching and entertaining and I’d recommend it for a quick read on a patio this summer.
