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.

Professional reviews

"Donofrio's memoir traces her evolution as a teenaged terror, followed by the "curse" of having a child, Jason, at the age of 17. The next years, spent on welfare and made tolerable by an abundant use of pharmaceuticals, are followed by her eventual admission into college and move to New York. The graphic and darkly humorous description of Donofrio's life, along with its vivid caricatures of her family and friends, is perfectly suited to Christina Moore's plaintive voice. Moore adds another wonderful performance to her growing repertoire. Her presentation will amuse, entertain, and enlighten listeners with its frank portrayal of the long journey Donofrio takes on her way to realizing her good fortune. E.J.F.
