She questions everything from love to singledom, friends and family, even Neanderthals and religion, as she searches for love and spiritual enlightenment in all the wrong places.READING EXCERPT:My life is an open book. Literally, considering you’re reading this. I write blogs. This doesn’t make me special or cool. Everyone writes blogs nowadays. But several years ago, 2004 to be exact, it was the wave of the future for all of us quick-flapping jibber jabberers who longed to have a voice in this world, even if no one was listening.

This book begins with my divorce and introduces you to The Life of Jen through brief essays, commentary and contemplative thoughts written during the next three years as I balanced motherhood, men, ego and coming to terms with the ridiculous world around me. You will journey through my pain, cynicism, insecurities, humor and heart as I attempt to grow into a woman- reluctantly, if I may add, as I have always possessed a bit of penis envy.My opinions are not always popular, my outlook on life is not always positive, and there is nothing orthodox about the way I travel my path. However, I do vow to learn from my mistakes, love those dear to me, and...
