Riding in cars with boys by Beverly Donofrio( Recording )

5 editions published between 1990 and 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 98 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Best-selling author Beverly Donofrio is building a growing following of fans with her honest, moving accounts of experiences from her own colorful life. Riding in Cars with Boys--the basis of the hit movie starring Drew Barrymore--is her funny and touching account of growing up too fast in the 1960s. Once her strict family told her she couldn't go to college, Beverly lost interest in everything except smoking, drinking, and rebelling against authority. She was a "bad" girl, and her behavior soon got her into trouble--as in the pregnant kind of trouble. From becoming a teen-aged wife and mother through finally going to college and getting her life back in order, Donofrio faced one challenge after another in her ambivalent efforts to "grow up" as she raised her son. By turns laugh-out-loud hilarious and poignantly insightful, Riding in Cars with Boys is perfectly served by a bright, smart narration from Christina Moore

In the middle of her vibrant Mexican town, amid good friends, margaritas at sunset, salsa, yoga, mariachis, even before the rapist arrived, a midlife crisis had been brewing. Failed relationships, worn-out dreams, and wavering religous beliefs had tinged Beverly Donofrio's life with despair, flat-lined it to gray. No longer sustained by the religious practices that had nourished her for years, she missed God and had been searching on the internet for a monastery she might join.
