Review Quotes"Posey has a lot to say in You're on an Airplane ... Her style may seem dotty, but it's actually searingly direct. She tackles personal challenges that must have been painful...but still manages to find some loopy joy in the experience... She writes, jauntily, about her insecurities-her candor might even make you feel jaunty about your own."
