My new life goal is to be friends with Mindy Kaling. This was a fantastic book to read; it's humorous, heart-warming, and brimming with good, sound advice. Her famous hasn't kept her from turning into a stereotypical Hollywood icon and that's what makes her so great. She's not someone you aspire to be friends with because she's famous, but because she's an awesome person who has worked hard and continues to work hard for all she has. ~ Reviewed by Misha D'Andrea
