The Plot :
The second book by E! TV show Chelsea Lately host Chelsea Handler, is yet another collection of essays and funny stories about her life.

Soon the lies escalate and Chelsea has to find a way out without being blacklisted at school.
2) Chelsea In Charge: During a vacation in Martha’s Vineyard, Chelsea pretends to be 16 years old in order, when she is actually 12, to be able to babysit to make some money. After completing some very successful stints as a baby sitter, she is called upon to babysit someone 2 years older than her actual age. Chelsea now needs to do her best to pretend to be 16 and manage this ultra-hyper 14 year old.

8) Barking Up The Wrong Tree: Chelsea dog sits for her friends.
9) Re-Gift: Chelsea gets invited to the birthday of a person she barely knows and decides to re-gift an old board game.
10) Jumped: Chelsea gets into a fight.
11) Mini Me: Chelsea meets her match in a smaller package.
12) Costa Rica: Chelsea takes a vacation with her dad.
Similar to her previous books, this one is just as funny. It makes for a good read on a lazy afternoon. I liked its quick pace and hilariously narrated incidents. It is nothing great yet makes for a fun read!
