Book Review: You’ll Never Believe What Happened to Lacey
You’ll Never Believe What Happened to Lacey is a book you won’t be able to put down. A delicious mixture of memoir and storytelling, and it doesn’t hurt that it’s absolutely hilarious, too. I want everyone I know to read this book. Especially everyone I know in Omaha.
