More Press for Jennifer Keishin Armstrong

“Reading this book was like traveling back in time to the 90’s/2000’s when names like Darren Starr (writer on 90210) and fashion trends (like the name necklace Carrie wore) were so popular.”
“Armstrong’s book is in-depth and insightful, with a fangirl’s reverence for the nitty-gritty of the creative process.”
“She’s present as a writer and as a fan, but removes herself far enough to make no excuses for the series’ embarrassing approach to race and the LGBTQ community – or the derogatory remarks made by characters to describe sex workers.”
