From the back cover:

Everybody loves Rocky, but nobody wants to be like her.

Rocky Belletouche is 47, overweight, and more than a little unbalanced. She had the kindest mirror on the planet. In it she still sees the voluptuous beauty that she was in her youth. But life has its problems.
Megan, her five year-old grand-daughter, has not stopped screeching since she was ejected from her mother's womb. Marty, her bi-polar coroner daughter, performs autopsies on her food while she's eating it and suffers agonizing withdrawals when she hasn't dissected a human in over four hours. Lola Mazola, her time-dated but loyal best friend, supports her madness. Edward, her accountant husband, doesn't quite know how to cope. He escapes into the predictable world of T.V. re-runs. They're less tiring than anything Rocky has in mind.
Rocky's most recent ambition is to become an exotic dancer.
True to her obsessive-compulsive nature, she persuades her family to drive across two countries over the holidays so she can try out as a Las Vegas Show Girl.

This is a very entertaining read.....a really humorous fictional comedy.
I am going to offer it up as a bookring.

Wonderful! The book has arrived today! When I saw the book title in the forum and saw that Flossie771 was hosting it I said to myself "You had me at the book title. I'm in!"

I finished my last Bookray last night and already started a book that Flossie771 gave to me: Eclipse by: Stephenie Meyer.

I will start this one when I am finished with Eclipse. Thank you so much for including me in your Bookring!

I guess my expectations for this book were too high. I expected a great read based on the story line and name but it was just ok. May have been my mood judging by others comments.
I will contact Cheli-garza for an address and get this moving.

I read this book on the plane to my sister's.

It was amusing at times. I expected more based on the title and the synopsis but... Perhaps my mood and the baby shrieking in the sit behind me played into my impression.

I have the address and hope to mail while in MD

Sorry this came a couple days ago and was trapped under a stack of holiday season mail order catalogs. I have a number of rings/rays ahead of this one, but I keep my profile updated weekly so you can always see how close this one is to the top.

I just couldn't get into the author's style of writing, so I didn't finish this one. The characters weren't that sympathetic to me. This year I will only give books 20 pages to grab me, so I'll pass this onto the next reader. I've already tried to contact OI-reader once, I'll try to contact her again.

Adjustment to reading and releasing schedule. Both wandering-B and I are traveling this summer. So, I left this book in Pa - will read next week, then send to one of wandering-B's host houses in the states (and then she'll figure out whether she mails it from the states or drags it back to Hong-Kong!)

Quite honestly, I was a bit disappointed. From one of the first pages on, I noticed some big grammatical errors and from then on I couldn't imagine that this book had been thoroughly edited. Because it needs some serious editing quite desperately. It's such a shame, because in general the story has a lot of potential, but all the crazy hopping from here to there and this and that, makes it quite unreadable in my opinion. The quick asides are too many, or should have been more elaborated.

I hope to hear from Sparkleberries soon ((s)he hasn't replied to my first PM) and hopefully I'll be able to send it on quickly.

Thanks very much for sharing this one with me!

The first part was a bit too much over the top for me, I put it apart and read another bookring, I gave it a second chance and liked the middle part about Marty.
The sreeching grand-daughter and the trip to Vegas were again too much for me but I loved the final dance which is not so strange considering the new fashion for the burlesque striptease.
