My Mom's a big fan of my work, but so are these people.

People I Want to Punch in the Throat:

"Mann takes familiar experiences — waiting in the carpool line, sports parents in the bleachers and bargaining with yard sale shoppers — and spins them into comedy gold. The tone is tough, sarcastic and sometimes angry, but the author also reveals a sensitive, vulnerable side."  --The Associated Press

People I Want to Punch in the Throat is so good that it’ll make you want to adopt all the cats in the world. I’m not sure about the correlation, but it’s that good. It should come with a warning." -- Jenny Lawson, author of #1 New York Times best seller Let’s Pretend This Never Happened 
“Jen Mann has an amazing way of telling stories that will make you cringe and burst out laughing at the same time. From swinger parties to racist toddlers, she makes the suburbs unbelievably funny." --Karen Alpert, New York Times best selling author of I Heart My Little A-Holes

"Relatable, real, and so outrageously funny! I have no idea why I hadn't discovered her blog before this book came out. Women now have their very own David Sedaris. Enjoy." -- Amazon Review

Spending the Holidays with People I Want to Punch in the Throat:

"Mann’s writing has transcended from witty anecdotes and complaints to notable satire. Hidden among the many laugh-out-loud zingers are lessons on how we relate to each other, and how ridiculous parenting culture has become."  --The Associated Press

"Following the success of her first book, she is now punching throats at holidays, starting from her being age two and continuing to the present, where she is a harried mother bemoaning not just Christmas but all holidays. . . . Harried holiday haters will chuckle and perhaps see themselves somewhere in Mann’s lifetime dislike of and misbehavior during America’s increasingly commercialized celebrations." --Booklist

"Mann delivers her signature punch lines and sharp critique on the often times ridiculous shenanigans of the modern family. Her ability to make an otherwise boring subject come alive with colorful personalities, biting sarcasm, and impressively astute observations on suburban culture is what makes Mann so much fun to read and so easy to relate to." -- The Huffington Post

My Lame Life:

"This is not just a YA book, it is an amazing book for anyone who has felt like they didn't fit in!"-- Amazon Review

"I laughed just as hard at this book as I did at People. Mann has realistically captured the teen experience, from the self-centered way they view the world, to the horrors of gym class and having a "cooler" sibling. I loved the journal format, and the way Plum had a list of people or things that she wanted to punch after each entry. The way that Plum's friendships and relationships with her family change over the course of the novel felt natural too. Additionally, I have a fear of bats, and the scene with Plum, the bat, and her family had me laughing and cringing. If I had a daughter with a bat in her hair, I'm not sure I would immediately jump to help either." --Librarian Sam's Corner

"If you can relate to the wonderful mix of pain, sarcasm, awkwardness, and hilarity that is adolescence, you'll love this book." -- New York Times best selling author A.K. Turner

"A book for people everywhere who don't fit in or fight to be unique." -- New York Times best selling author Andra Watkins
