Ann Hodgman is a funny lady. In this book, she explains how she got that way. But the book only goes up through sixth grade.

            After that, her life became so embarrassing that writing it down would have caused the pages to burst into flames.

Praise for How to Die of Embarrassment Every Day

“Her witty prose has the right balance of nostalgia and self-deprecation.” --School Library Journal
 
“In these light and funny pages, grownup Ann looks back with unmerciful self-deprecation on herself as she was in the early 1960s, and the result is a book that children ages 8-14 can enjoy as a kind of genial historical artifact and that their parents can read with affectionate winces at the quirks and obsessions of long-ago childhood.” --The Wall Street Journal
 
"Hodgman's longings, insecurities, and passions are universal…the book's strength lies in her blistering sense of humor and her refusal to talk down to readers.” --Publishers Weekly
 
"Rueful, funny and nostalgic…” --Kirkus Reviews
