This is a fabulously fun book that will have you rocking along with your own internal 80s soundtrack as you wince and laugh your way through Johnnie's attempts at putting her life back on the right track.

Review by: Kathryn Kristofik on Oct. 10, 2012 :
Made for TV is a delicious comic confection, and Rosin plays with language like it's a giant tinker toy. She's a kinder, gentler, FUNNIER Diablo Cody. Someone give this woman a TV show!
