I went to the library to pick this book up, which is an indication of how badly I wanted to read it. I've become nearly ebook exclusive in recent years, partly because you can download an ebook from the library without having to get dressed. Sorry book sniffers. #conveniencewins
Sometimes you just need to read a celebrity memoir. (Never mind that I had just read a celebrity memoir.) Jennie Garth, former teen and current reality star begins her story with an Einstein quotation. She really does.
The intro takes on the dumb blonde stereotype, debunking it with evidence that Garth, a natural blonde, can drive, and even parallel park, an RV.
Garth continually promises more than she delivers, if you can believe that. She warns us to skip the part about life on Beverly Hills 90201 because she's going to destroy our innocence about it.
Not enough destruction, Jennie! The one hint of gossip she drops is that there is one of her costars who she isn't still happy to see. It's not until the acknowledgments that you might deduce that the unloved is Gabrielle Carteris, who is the one 90210 kid not listed.
There's a fifteen-page photo spread in the middle, but it's not that juicy. Mostly Garth seems like a mostly sweet, if high strung person who wrote the book for the money. You can't fault her for doing so.
