Publisher's Summary

A laugh-out-loud funny look at pop culture and social media stardom from one of the most popular funemployed millennials today, perfect for fans of Next Level Basic and The Betches

As the creator of the breakout Instagram account @GirlWithNoJob, Claudia Oshry has turned not wanting an ordinary career into a thriving media company and pop culture-focused podcast and morning show. The origins of her pop culture obsessions can be traced back to household debates over boy bands, and her flair for the dramatic to her young emulation of Blair Waldorf. When she started @GirlWithNoJob, Claudia entered that world herself as a social media influencer, sharing her unbelievable - and unbelievably awkward - encounters with some of her favorite A-listers as she navigates her incredible access. Now, in this juicy, behind-the-scenes look at the life of an Instagram sensation, Claudia leaves nothing out as she contemplates staying true to yourself while hustling in today’s digital culture. 

Sometimes the best lessons are learned the hard way, and her journey hasn’t been without its punch-in-the-face doses of humility. But, like anyone with a relentless desire to be popular, she dusts herself off and finds a new, better way forward. With humor and unique insights, Claudia examines the nature of social media celebrity, the many sides of fandom, and cancel culture. If there’s one thing she knows for sure, she was born thirsty, and she’s here for another round!

Not for me.

This book was quite boring and hard to get through. The story didn't have much depth. I will be returning it for sure.

Better than I could have imagined!

This book is everything of the sort. It’s emotional. It makes you cry and laugh all at the same time.

For those of you who don’t listen to the Toast or even those that do, it will be an eye opening read into Claudia’s life and beyond.

Your mom isn’t “super conservative.” She is super racist and dangerous to the Muslim community.

As a former fan, I picked the book up hoping to see some growth from Claudia. Despite her problematic behavior (which didn’t stop in 2016 btw), I do think she is committed to being better. However, I wish she would understand that most people don’t necessarily want to her disown her only living parent, rather publicly disavow her rhetoric which directly puts minorities at harm. Her views aren’t “conservative,” they are racist and dangerous.

Pretty boring

This is a pretty boring memoir from a self absorbed Instagrammer. Was hoping for a cute, funny book but this was a waste of money and time. Perhaps if you are a fan, you may enjoy it.

Listened to the whole thing in one day

Claudia really poured her heart into this and hearing her tell her own story was very moving. I laughed, I was emotional, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Well done.

Finished in a day

I follow her podcast and was excited to learn how she got started. It’s a great read/ listen entertaining and filled in some gaps from the podcast. Plus it’s fun to see someone grow and evolve.

Love this book. What a great Author. She is my youngest son’s age. So its awesome to see her view on life. I hope this makes it to the airports. Love the love of the sisters. I only started watching these girls during pandemic. So Im late. But such a joy to hear all the stories to fill in the blanks. Great book

Just ok.

While there were a few laugh out loud moments, overall I didn’t find this book very funny. There were some parts that were relatable, but many parts that felt too preachy for me. I give Claudia an A for her performance though.

A Girl with No Skills

This is a poorly written “memoir” about an extremely privileged girl and her racist family. Nothing about it is inspiring or even funny - she is really just a lazy person. Read Jessica Simpson’s book instead if you want to be entertained and uplifted.

This book ain’t it sis

After being a loyal toaster for years, this book felt like revisionist history, attempting to paint a very different story of the “cancel culture” that has plagued her repeatedly over the last 5 years. I honestly really wanted to like this book and I was hopeful it could be a chance for her to show growth, change, and genuine reflection. Instead, it was full of deflection, finger pointing, and just tiptoed around the issues without ever facing them head on. Sadly, this book is just a big fat nothing-burger with no real meat in it.

Boring, lie-filled

Yawn. Another self important influencer with nothing valuable to say. It’s also disingenuous for her to call her mother “proudly conservative” when her mother is literally banned from multiple countries based on her extremist anti-Muslin activism.
