If Boo was an IRL therapist, I would absolutely go to her with my problems and spill out my soul. She is the sort of person that, even on the written page, puts you instantly at ease in her presence. She listens to any problem without passing judgment and offers straight-shooting advice that is as compassionate as it is heartfelt. She also has a great sense of humour and a lot of sass. She’s sort of like a Dear Abby and Dr Ruth rolled into one.
While “Dear Boo” is not biographical in structure, Boo shares her own life, experiences and—gasp!—sexual adventures in bite-sized snippets. This makes Boo feel less like a therapist sitting behind a desk and more like a friend sitting next to you on the couch, confiding in you even as you confide in her.
