Miss New York Has Everything

I am normally not a big memoir fan. However, my cousin's professor in college wrote this book so I thought I'd give it a try.

Jakiela (rhymes with tequila) starts out with her family life growing up in the Pittsburgh area in the 1970s. I could relate a lot to the Pittsburgh parts of the book. At first I didn't like her writing style, as it seemed to jump around too much, but then it grew up me. I loved the parts about her Polish father (reminded me some of my Polish grandfather) and her flight attentdant experiences.
