Read in April, 2008

Although pretty depressing, I thought this book did a very good job of just being real. From pulling out traumatic moments in her childhood, to describing the cruelty between classmates, and moving on to have the main character, Dolores, watch others watching her growing waistline, I felt I met her in real life.

Wally Lamb does an awesome job of writing from a woman's perspective. I could relate to Dolores, as she brought out my "inner fat girl." I could understand the feeling of guilt after eating too much cake, the dissatisfaction with my reflection in a store window and the fear of abandonment after having a parent leave you.

I like that there isn't a clear "happily ever after here." But...you can root for Dolores while you read and I think you'll feel proud of her when you close the book after finishing the last page.
