I gotta say, Ms Keltner missed a great opportunity by not calling this Self-Help 102. ;-)

I have to admit, I was concerned at first when I realized how much of the book would be about the burgeoning relationship between the 18-year narrator and her new boyfriend, but you know what? I was pleasantly surprised by how honest and earnest it felt. The awkward sex conversations with her parents, the desperate attempts to find private time to fool around - it took me back in time twenty years, and was a load of fun.

The relatives introduced in Self Help Part Deux were even more staggeringly idiotic and monstrous than those in the first book. The characters in How to Take Over the World had some redeeming qualities, and felt like they could have been real members of your family. In How to Survive a Bombardment, I cannot fathom why Dani’s parents would want to hang out with these people, except to provide awkwardly hilarious scenes for our reading enjoyment (and a brilliant, epic finale). Still, anyone in their right mind would have cut ties with these people years ago.

Except for Corey. I loved that annoying, lying little bastard.
