Mindy Kaling, creator and star of The Mindy Project, follows up her bestselling book Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? with another laugh-out-loud collection of essays. In Why Not Me?, Kaling shares her ongoing journey to find contentment and excitement in her adult life, whether it’s falling in love at work, attempting to be the first person in history to lose weight without any behavior modification whatsoever, or most important, believing that you have a place in Hollywood when you’re constantly reminded that no one looks like you.
