3.5 for me.

I hate to only give a 3 on this book, because someone else would probably think it is a 5. It was a bit slow moving for me, and I'm getting tired of all the BBW books. Seems like all anyone can write anymore. Now, if a plump woman accepts her body and still likes herself, that's great, but to go through the whole book and the only thing the woman ever thinks about is how fat she is, so that makes her unloveable gets a bit weary. Good story, well edited, but not quit there.

This was a very good book to read. The characters and story so real. Made me laugh and made me sad. Loved the whole story from beginning to end. Well told...
