Summerlandish: Do as I Say, Not as I Did, Summer Land

22.95 AUD
A hilarious memoir of a 25 year old ‘average American girl' growing up Gen Y in Gainsville, Florida, as the outspoken outrageous child of an alternative single mum. Summer Land may only be twenty-five years old, but her attention-hungry discretion-free disposition has landed her in more hot water situations than you've had changes of underwear. 
This collection of outrageous true stories marks the quarter-century long journey of Summer Land from babyhood in Gainesville, Florida to how in holy hell she ended up shacked-up, married-up and knocked-up in Mudgee with an Australian who spends most of his time 15km underground (even on Valentine's Day). Summerlandish is all the hard-won, scar-leaving, tattoo-regretting, butthole-tearing lessons Summer has learned over the years - summarised here in all their glamorously gory detail, so you don't have to bother with learning them yourselves. 
And, unsurprisingly, she seems to know quite a bit about love, life and awkward moments involving too much caffeine and/or lack of restraint.
