Being an introvert in a world that glorifies cool isn't easy, but when Issa Rae, the creator of the Shorty Award-winning hit series "The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl," is that introvert, it sure is entertaining. Now, in this debut collection of essays written in her witty and self-deprecating voice, Rae covers everything from cybersexing in the early days of the Internet to deflecting unsolicited comments on weight gain, to learning to accept yourself--natural hair and all.

I love what Issa Rae does, but the audio book isn't very entertaining. The book leaves better images as you read, but the audio book is kinda monotone.

This fairly light-weight entry into diverse memoir has valuable things to say about race, but is somewhat undermined by the search for humor. I suspect that it speaks loudest to those who share Rae's slightly pre-millenial cultural context. That is, those who are roughly her age.
