Dear Girls Above Me: Inspired by a True Story by Charlie McDowell * 3/5 Stars
*warning: strong language and sexual content (of course).

This is a somewhat passive aggressive (at one point he begs the reader not to “out” him to the duo upstairs) tale of Charlie who vents about the loud "airheads" occupying the apartment above him via Twitter.

It was worthwhile read, though not as good as “Sh*t My Dad Says” by Justin Halpern. 

There are plenty of LOL moments, although you might find some parts somewhat demeaning towards women.  While not the sharpest knives in the drawer they’re still human beings and in sympathy we’re all capable of saying & doing stupid things.  I’m tempted to friend them on Facebook in the hope they figure out he’s talking about them & sue for their inclusion in this book. 

With that said… I personally would like more of the “Girls Above Me” stuff and less of his own life. There are parts of the book that are drawn out and boring.

Chapter Nineteen is my personal favorite. Charlie relates how the girls sing songs with the wrong lyrics.  Wait… I do that!  

“Dear Girls Above Me” is an easy, fun and quick read.
