Would you try another book from Jen Mann and/or Renée Chambliss?
This narrator did not match the tone of the book whatsoever, her vocal talents should be limited to children's books. It was very over the top 'girly'...destroyed the book IMO.
Would you be willing to try another book from Jen Mann? Why or why not?
No. I thought overall the storyline was somewhat relatable, however the author appeared to be outright lazy. This was definitely a 'first world problems' type of book.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
Her voice was not right for this book.
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from People I Want to Punch in the Throat?
That seen with the 'Agnes' girl who apparently has a history of violence and the school lets her get away with it.

This has to be one of the worst books I've ever stumbled upon. With only a few chapters left, I had to end this painful journey. I thought, at the very least, that if I was going to be subjected to the intricate and boring details of the day-to-day life of an upper-middle class mother (struggling to fit in with upper-class Stepford wives - oh, the horror!), it would at least be written in a humorous manner. No such luck. It was like being in a PTA meeting for 5 hours. There are people out there who enjoy this book? Reading this book is like momentarily living the nightmare I've always run from. Maybe my mistake was reading "Year of Yes" by Shonda Rhimes immediately before subjecting myself to this book, which could easily be titled "Years of No"....I'm a white, middle-class lady, & this book embarrassed me. Such an excellent reminder of the need to expose myself and any future children (if I still want to have them after reading this book) to diversity and the real world.
