I thought that after I had weight loss surgery that I would never have to diet again, the weight would just fall off and that would be it. Boy, was I wrong.

I understand that this is an important story because it really happens all over the USA, but it was hard for me to get into because of the language. Not just because it had a lot of swearing and cursing, but because the dialect it is written in is al ...more

Totally adorable story. I listened on CD and the reader was outstanding. Katie can't handle being home on the farm and she can't quite get a handle on London. She misunderstands a lot of motives, people and behavior based on looks and rumor. Then thi

I kept waiting for the story to start. It was just a description of a life set after To Kill A Mockingbird. It didn't have a big storyline.kind of boring.

This book didn't seem to be about Lydia, the girl who was already dead, but no one knew it, at the start of the book. It was about the emotional backwash her death created in the lives of her family. I didn't care much for anyone but Hannah, the youn ...more

You really start to understand the psychology and prejudice associated with viewing yourself as fat first and a person second. Fun and eye opening at the same time.
