Suburban Crazy an Embellished Tale

Teresa Wallace

An Italian city girl living in Chicago has to adjust to life in the 'burbs when she and her husband move and leave her beloved city behind. A no-holds-barred commentary on everything that is wrong with the suburbs ensues, as tales of suburban life demonstrate exactly why this girl loves the city. From being chased by wild animals to sitting out a tornado in a big, scary, probably haunted basement, Suburban Crazy is a brutally honest, larger-than-life account of the experiences of a feisty, outspoken mother of two who is determined to share the observations she's made and valuable lessons she's learned, remaining true to her call-it-as-you-see-it ways and expressing, unfiltered, her opinions on life as she knows it in Suburbia, USA.
