I finished. how did you like it?

Megan | 7 comments Well, I liked most of the story. But I felt like, for a "coming of age" tale, she never really...came of age. She never developed a healthy relationship with food - at camp or anywhere else in her life. Which, after reading the rest of the story with interest, was disappointing.

How did you like it?

I agree. But as a fat kid myself, a lot of what she was saying did make sense to me. Her journal entries almost read verbatium like mine did (at the time). But I agree. There was something ... unwholesome ... about her experience. I don't know how to put it into words.

A lot of nonfiction that I read, I find myself asking this question at the end: Would I be ...... (insert name)'s friend if I knew him/her in real life?

I'm thinking no on this one!
