Laurie Nataro delivers ten new laugh out loud stories, along with three previously published favorites, in An Idiot Girl’s Christmas: True Tales from the Top of the Naughty List. In this side-splitting compilation Nataro shares her holiday woes with relatable family stories. From a mother who goes on a wild tangent discussing the fire hazard of real Christmas trees versus synthetic ones, to the grandmother who’s convinced she’s being scammed by a store when she has to pay more then $20 for an item.

Notaro takes readers on many adventures, including a disastrous gift exchange during a first meeting with future in-laws, Christmas party guests who just won’t leave and an awkward Christmas Eve emergency that leaves her puts crowded aisles of Kmart.

With chapter titles like “O Holy Night or The Year I Ruined Christmas”, “Jingle Hell” and “Christmas Death Trap,” her satirical style paints the perfect picture of an overwhelming holiday season that sometimes you can’t help but laugh at.

The Verdict: An Idiot Girl’s Christmas: True Tales from the Top of the Naughty List is a hilarious deviation from your typical Christmas reads and is the perfect prescription for anyone suffering from Grinch syndrome. The stories are not over the top, they’re just downright funny.
