From what I've read, this promised to be an honest and elegantly written memoir and I'm looking forward to it. I literally found it in the street with some other books that I didn't want, so I don't know if it's somebody's attempt to be a wildcat bookcrosser, yard sale leftovers that were displaced, or what.

I read the first few chapters, but I didn't like it. I was expecting something more humorous and uplifting. This just made me depressed.

Thank you so much for sending Grizzlygirl!
Can't wait to read it!

BEFORE YOU READ BELOW, I MAY BE ACCUSED OF SPOILING THE BOOK A LITTLE BIT BECAUSE I GAVE SOME THINGS AWAY...JUST BEWARE.

I’m sorry but there isn’t anything nice to say about this book. I actually feel really bad about this because the author was so sad and she thanked the reader at the end of the book for reading it.
I just don’t understand how someone could write a book like this. Not only is it depressing, there is nothing good or happy in any part of this book.
The author obviously had a rough childhood. Her mother was mean to her and made her feel unwanted and bad all the time. I just felt like this person was trying to justify her unhappiness and explain why everything had to do with her fatness. And she pounded this theme again and again from beginning to end. I rushed through the end because I just couldn’t take the misery anymore.
There is really no plot to this book. No story. No flow. Just a never ending reconstruction of this lady’s life and how sad it was. She spent a lot of time on her childhood and then rushed out of it to talk about her unsuccessful marriages and briefly mentioned her daughters. Again, nothing happy, nothing promising and no light at the end of the tunnel.
The worst part is, I googled her name and found out she died of Colon cancer at age 61. That makes an even sadder ending to a sad life.

I am glad I read this even though I gave it such a bad rating.
Most of that was because of the bad feeling it left me.
I’m going to probably release this into the wild....
