Hi, I’m Lainie

If you just stumbled here (literally for some) you are definitely in the right place.

I am soooo happy you found this site and can’t wait to meet you.

Choose Your Own Adventure

Do you remember those Choose Your Own Adventure (CYA) books from the 80’s 90’s? I know I’m totally dating myself but I was soooo into them (for about a minute) in between Judy Bloom books (hijacked copy of Wifey not included) & the Sweet Valley High series.
