May/June 2006

In the quirky, hilarious memoir Queen of the Oddballs, performance artist and author Hillary Carlip (Girl Power) recounts her adventures as a young girl growing up in Los Angeles. Through her various escapades as a singing telegram delivery girl, fire-eater, juggler, rock star, and more, Carlip decides it's okay to just be herself and her candid memoir celebrates her offbeat style. With wacky true stories ranging from getting suspended from elementary school for smoking (à la Holly Golightly) to performing on The Gong Show and receiving a first-ever perfect score from judge Rex Reed, this unconventional tale of self-discovery offers an unforgettable ride.
