PostSubject: reviews of my book "Wear a Helmet"   Thu Feb 11, 2010 1:20 pm

"An absolute joyride through a life examined, a burden shared, and a soul shining with determination and honesty. You will come away from this book feeling like there's someone out there who really understands what it's like to suck the marrow out of life."~KIWI Club Reviews


"Think David Sedaris meets Nora Ephron. In Wear a Helmet, Baeli again displays her ability to swing from unapologetic humor to revealing even the most painful fragments of her psyche. It becomes clear, as you read through these pages, that she relies on humor as a survival mechanism. "I'm an open book, but some of the pages are stuck together," she admits. From a comical account of falling off the top of her SUV (Cherryot Gymnastics) to admitting profound insecurity as an over-forty single lesbian in the dating pool (Id, Ego, Super-Ego & the Social Security Number), to a revealing trip journal during a recent relocation, wherein she falls prey to a panic attack (Going to Denver Because You're Dead), the author of Wear a Helmet strides unabashed through the battlefield of life familiar to us all, sometimes wearing a jester's jingling hat. The result is a portrait of a person you can relate too, who says all the things outloud, we can only murmur under our breathe, and she does it in a way that makes you want to be counted as one of her friends in the journey." ~LightSwitcher Books
