Publisher's Summary

Babe Walker, center of the universe, is a painstakingly manicured white girl with an expensive smoothie habit, a proclivity for Louboutins, a mysterious mother she's never met, and approximately 50 bajillion Twitter followers. But her "problems" have landed her in shopping rehab - that's what happens when you spend $246,893.50 in one afternoon at Barneys. Now she's decided to write her memoir, revealing the gut-wrenching hurdles she's had to overcome in order to be perfect in every way, every day. Hurdles such as:

  • I hate my horse.
  • Every job I've ever had is the worst job I've ever had.
  • He's not a doctor, a lawyer, or a prince.
  • I'll eat anything, as long as it's gluten-free, dairy-free, low-carb, low-fat, low-calorie, sugar-free, and organic

In an Adderall-induced flash of inspiration, Babe Walker has managed to create one of the most enjoyable, unforgettable memoirs in years.

    "Hysterical"

    I loved this, I was literally laughing aloud. You want to hate her, you really do...but you just can't. Tastes a little like Mean Girls....fun listen!

    "A romp in 6" Albino Crocodile Stuart Weitzmans!"

    Tavia Gilbert is one of my favorite narrators. And her reading of White Girl Problems is the best I've heard yet. With only one exception (a Jamaican accent is *not* easy), her voicing of every character is outstanding and her pacing is spot on. The book is extremely funny. It gives you permission to laugh 'til you snort at how ludicrous some people can be. For Christmas this year I want Ms. Gilbert to voice-over every entry on the Babe Walker blog!

    "Hilarious!!!"

    I am a huge Tavia Gilbert fan. When I discovered she narrated the book, I was curious so I listened to the 5 min sample. I laughed so hard until I cried. If you are interested in being cheered up, get this book. Tavia's comedy delivery is spot on flawless. I am a big fan of Babe Walker although I really love her alter ego Babette!

    "Could not stop laughing. Total guilty pleasure."
    Where does White Girl Problems rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The story was funny as hell and the actress reading it did a great job.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Babette.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes, it was a total guilty pleasure. I mean, it's very chic and very LA, but also very relatable.

    I thought it was hilarious.


    Any additional comments?

    Very funny. I was entertained the whole time. I hope there's a sequel!

    "Boring."
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    If you like to hear someone whine and complain 6 or some hours, then this book is for you. It's not even funny. It's ridiculous.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Not sure


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Tavia Gilbert?

    N/A


    What character would you cut from White Girl Problems?

    Babe Walker!

    "Okay, but not great"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    While I enjoyed her certain sense of humor and could relate in many ways, having grown up in Orange County, California, the book seemed to wander without direction through her life. Some of the chapters are amusing, but the book, in general, dragged for me. It wasn't what I expected.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Babe Walker again?

    Yes, I would probably giver her another try.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    There were some amusing incidents. I think the chapter with the sex partner/trainer was too much, I get the humor behind it, but it was just too much for me.


    Any additional comments?

    I think many people won't get the level of Babe's expectations and won't understand the daily excessive indulgences, which granted, aren't that over the top for those that actually live that type of lifestyle, especially in L.A. And that's where the humor lies....

    "Ehhhhh. "

    Not my cup of tea. It was funny at times, but just totally over the top and crude at others. I wouldn't recommend this to a friend.

    "Amazing performance"

    The book was funny but not LOL funny. I liked it overall, I think I liked it so much because of the performance. Beforehand, I hyped this book up so much but it wasn't as amazing as I thought. Good overall.

    When this book started I was wondering how it got so many stars. Now I know. Surprisingly funny and entertaining. This was a light and very fun book. I will read the next book.
