Review: Candy Girl By: Diablo Cody

Candy Girl: A Year in the Life of an Unlikely StripperCandy Girl: A Year in the Life of an Unlikely Stripper by Diablo Cody
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The writer of Juno and Young Adult has a memoir that I could not resist. I was not disappointed, the fresh mouth, tongue in cheek, sarcastic view of her year of stripping leaves the reader laughing and horrified all at the same time. There is honesty and self-discovery, and even self degregation on the pages, but with little tidbits broken in between like 10 Worst Stripper Names (which include sexually transmitted diseases). Rarely have I ever read a memoir so fast and found myself wanting another book from the same person.
For a quick laugh and be aghast book, Cody has nailed it.
