You will laugh, and cry, then cry from laughing

Helen Ellis, author of Southern Lady Code and American Housewife stuns yet again in her series of essays in Bring Your Baggage and Don't Pack Light. Helen tells the stories of her friends as they grow up and tackle the slings and arrows that life is launching in their direction.

With the perfect first chapter title ("Grown-Ass Ladies Gone Mild"), Helen sets the tone of humor that one has come to expect from her work. That's not to say that she doesn't discuss serious issues, but that you better not be surprised to find yourself laughing while she's talking about stage 4 cancer. Through her stories, you can see her support network of friends and how they come together to make sure life doesn't kick too hard while someone is down.

Read with tissues to catch the happy and sad tears!
