Freida McFadden, aka Dr. Fizzy McFizz over at A Cartoon Guide to Becoming a Doctor, wrote a wonderfully funny novel about the nightmare that is intern year, and as I mentioned before, I helped edit it. I know my status as editor makes me a bit biased, but I truly and honestly enjoyed reading “The Devil Wears Scrubs”.
Jane McGill, the suffering intern, stumbles through a series of comical mishaps as she tries to survive the wrath of her evil senior resident Alyssa. Jane meets her problem-plagued situation with a brand of sarcasm and wit that left me laughing out loud at several points of this book. The book is currently listed as the #1 bestseller in the Doctors and Medicine Humor category for a reason. It’s truly well-written and funny. Though the novel is definitely about doctors and medicine, it has a broad appeal that most readers would enjoy. It reminded me of its namesake, “The Devil Wears Prada,” and had a chick lit edge to it.
If you are looking for a light funny read, “The Devil Wears Scrubs” will not disappoint you. It’s currently listed at $2.99 for the kindle version on Amazon.
And now back to your regularly scheduled parenting foibles and toy humor.
