Jen K’s #CBR5 Review #76: Dear Girls Above Me by Charles McDowell

I first heard of this novel thanks to a fellow Cannonballer’s review, so when I saw it at the bookstore I figured it would be perfect for the plane ride I had coming up (little did I know at the time that my plane ride would take an extra 24 hours due to delays; this book barely lasted through the first airport but that’s why my carry on was basically a bag of books). I have to agree with Lisa Bee – it was a very fun book, and I definitely recommend getting it for an amusing afternoon. The great thing is that even when Charlie, the character, is being condescending about the two women that live above him, the reader realizes that Charlie himself is kind of ridiculous as well and in some cases his mockery directed at the women really just points out his own personal issues.
