Official Review: Don't Grow Up To Be A Crack Whore

Please use this sub-forum to discuss any fiction books or series that do not fit into one of the other categories. If the fiction book fits into one the other categories, please use that category instead.
Forum rules
While in the forum's younger and less active days this used to be the one and only forum for "reviews and discussions about specific books", this is now just the subforum "other fiction" in a more well-organized "reviews and discussions about specific books" section with subforums for each genre. Check it out! :) Remember, the forums in the reviews section (including this forum) are for posting about a single book or series in topic, and the topic title should include the book's title. If you are creating a new topic, please try to post it in one of the other genres rather than posting it here in the "other fiction" section. This is only for books that do not fit in any of the other genre categories we have listed.

Sounds like a clever book and a great review. Truly, crack whore is one of parents' worse fears for kids, the reason we sometimes overreact to misbehavior.

When I first saw the title, I had originally thought it would be a sort of nonfiction book for adults or some sort of biography about the dangers of drugs. Honestly, I'm so glad I was wrong. It sounds like a quick, humorous read. I kind of wish more was included besides the single poem, though.

I would love to see a collection of poetry either centered around this piece or the themes presented in this piece. I actually really loved the length of Don't Grow Up To Be a Crack Whore because that's what made it such a quick and humorous read. And maybe the title was pulling a bit of extra attention, because how could anyone pass up that title? But the piece itself is still wonderfully funny and I want more of that humor!

The title does grab one's attention. I want to read it just to get a kick out of it. I do hope the author added a few more pages to it. Great review!
