The Clancys of Queens
I wasn't sure what to expect from a memoir of an Irish/Italian American girl who grew up in Queens, New York. I was not only pleasantly surprised, I was thoroughly entertained as well. Tara Clancy, or scooter as her dad called her, and chickenella as her mother referred to her, tells a tale of growing up between two worlds, one in working class Queens and one in the more refined Hamptons. I loved the humor in this book and the fact that it was filled with fun and silly memories of friends and family. It was warm, thoughtful but also spunky, which made it a memorable and entertaining read. Tara Clancy has a style all her own and hopefully there will be more tales to come.
Thanks to Blogging for Books for allowing me to read this book in exchange for an honest review.
