really liked it

This book was somewhat painful for me to read because I related to so many of the situations that the author wrote about regarding her maddening journey with weight loss and being happy with her body type/size. While I didn't have the kind of mother that the author had (not even close!!), I did have horrific, emotionally traumatizing encounters with mean boys in elementary school and junior high and I am sure that this is the root of my own weight issues. I probably need therapy. If you are skinny and have never had "weight issues"--don't bother with this book. If you have "weight issues"--you know who you are...then this is a good read. Painful, but good.
