I actually finished a book while on vacation!

This was really good if you're into memoirs of people struggling with body/weight/food/emotional issues. If you don't like those kinds of books, you might not be too interested in it. Whitely alternates describing her (third) trip up Kilimanjaro with the troubles she experienced with her parents' divorce, her father's absence from her life, and her addiction to food.
