    LOL How d this happen I ve had an up and down relationship with Lucy Knisley for a few years now, with her most recent book, Something New, representing its absolute nadir Ugh, Something New. So when I saw a Goodreads giveaway for Knisley s new book, Kid Gloves, my first instinct was to stay far away A faint spark of curiosity caused me to enter the giveaway anyway, but I was of course fully expecting that I wouldn t win The odds were against it, after all I guess we can all see what happe LOL...
