Babe Walker, center of the universe, is a painstakingly manicured white girl with an expensive smoothie habit, a proclivity for Louboutins, a mysterious mother she's never met, and approximately 50 bajillion Twitter followers. But her "problems" have landed her in shopping rehab-that's what happens when you spend $246,893.50 in one afternoon at Barneys. Now she's decided to write her memoir, revealing the gut-wrenching hurdles she's had to overcome in order to be perfect in every way, every day. Hurdles such as:
- I hate my horse.
- Every job I've ever had is the worst job I've ever had.
- He's not a doctor, a lawyer, or a prince.
- I'll eat anything, as long as it's gluten-free, dairy-free, low-carb, low-fat, low-calorie, sugar-free, and organic.
Babe Walker lives (and very occasionally works) in LA. Her creators are David Oliver Cohen, Tanner Cohen, and Lara Schoenhals, all actors and writers who live in both New York and LA.

"White Girl Problems makes me laugh a lot, and cry a little. It's about time someone drew our attention to the devastating reality: White girl problems are all around us . . . absolutely hysterical."—Susan Sarandon
"Babe Walker will be your new best friend and worst enemy. I loved it!"—Emma Roberts
"The epitome of the urban socialite you love to hate."—Time magazine
"A social satire in the guise of a memoir. . . . The most artful elements are the charming fashion illustrations peppered throughout Walker's half-million followers on Twitter and the public's bottomless appetite for news about real-life socialites like the Kardashians prove that a large audience for this story does exist."—Booklist
