Bestselling author Beverly Donofrio is building a growing following of fans with her honest, moving accounts of experiences from her own colorful life. Riding in Cars with Boys—the basis of the hit movie starring Drew Barrymore—is her funny and touching account of growing up too fast in the 1960s. Once her strict family told her she couldn’t go to college, Beverly lost interest in everything except smoking, drinking, and rebelling against authority. She was a “bad” girl, and her behavior soon got her into trouble—as in the pregnant kind of trouble. From becoming a teenaged wife and mother through finally going to college and getting her life back in order, Donofrio faced one challenge after another in her ambivalent efforts to “grow up” as she raised her son. By turns laugh-out-loud hilarious and poignantly insightful, Riding in Cars with Boys is perfectly served by a bright, smart narration from Christina Moore.

    " AMAZING book. She's an inspiration to everyone. Ms. Donofrio's trials and tribulations have shaped her into the woman she is today and I believe that there's not one person out there who resents that. "

    " It was ok. A bit rushed at times. Felt sort of prosaic, more than literary. "

    " Read this after watching the movie. Or should I say, I listened to it as an audiobook while helping my mom repaint our living room. It kept us entertained for the duration of project. "

    " This book isn't that good. Funny I guess. Whatever. I'm in it and I don't care about anything else. Five Stars.

    Don't see the movie
