The Clancys of Queens by Tara Clancy

In "The Clancys of Queens", author Tara Clancy recounts her formative years in Queens, NY during the 1980's and 1990's.  In the author's life, it did "take a village" to raise her, yet she definitely grew up on her own terms.  This rough-around-the-edges girl reminds me very much of what Rizzo from "Grease" might have grown up like (except for sexual orientation), and was a curious story from an alternate universe to suburbia or rural America.

In all honesty, I found this book to be both fascinating and cringe-worthy at times.  I'm having a hard time deciding if I enjoyed this book or not.

I was given a copy of this book from the publisher for my honest opinion.
