"The book June Cleaver would have written if she spent more time drinking and less time vacuuming. As a girl, Una LaMarche was as smart as she was awkward. She was blessed with a precocious intellect, a love of all things pop culture, and eyebrows bushier than Frida Kahlo's. Adversity made her stronger...and funnier. In UNABROW, Una shares the cringe-inducing lessons she's learned from a life as a late bloomer, including the seven deadly sins of DIY bangs, how not to make your own jorts, and how to handle pregnancy, plucking, and the rites of passage during which your own body is your worst frenemy"-- Provided by publisher.
"Una LaMarche has written a hilarious take on coming of age by doling out all the advice she wishes her own mother had given her about everything, from how to take care of her unibrow to how to avoid the most common faux pas in the Facebook age"-- Provided by publisher.

Tina, Lena, Una! Una LaMarche's self-deprecating humor fits right in with other funny feminist authors. A quick and often hilarious read that will appeal to 30-something-ish new mothers in particular (says this 40-something, still sort of newish mother).

I laughed out loud a few times with Una LaMarche. Compared to some of the foul-mouthed female comedy writers putting out books, this is pretty wholesome, self-deprecating humor.
What a great cover photo! And what great parenting she must have received to emerge from that unibrow with a strong sense of self.
The writer is smart and clever, and the book moves quickly.

This book had me laughing so hard that my family had to come in and check to make sure I was okay. Fans of Tina Fey, Caitlin Moran and Amy Poehler, check this one out!
