Publisher's Summary

Best-selling 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 teen-aged 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.

Even better than the movie!

I loved the movie but, as usual, the book is SO much better! It's actually a bit of a different story; better in my opinion.

Good storyline overall.

Wish it was a bit more exciting. Narrator is kind of monotone but not terrible.
