9780142181447: Unabrow : Misadventures of a Late Bloomer

Growing up, Una LaMarche was as smart as she was awkward. She was blessed with a precocious intellect, a love of all things pop-culture and a seriously bushy monobrow. Adversity (and plucking) made her stronger and funnier, and now Una has written a hilarious take on the coming-of-age genre by doling out all the advice she wishes her mother had given her. Described as the literary lovechild of Nora Ephron (who wrote When Harry Met Sally) and Jenny Lawson (infamous blogger at The Bloggess), LaMarche is sure to find a receptive audience in anyone who likes to laugh.
