Overall, I liked this collection better than the first one. That having been said, I'd recommend reading "Fat Girls" first to become acquainted with the author's family. My favorite here was the transgender piece.

Overall, the book was OK. It's an enjoyable read, but not one that will inspire.

I found the main character annoying after all, but clearly I'm in the minority. Lots of wallowing in personal melodrama. It's like reading the diary of a slightly depressed single woman.

This book was very below average in my opinion. I look forward to memoirs because they tend to make me laugh quite a bit and I usually fly through the short stories. At the end of Cheryl Peck's memoirs it feels like the author is quite proud of herself for being so witty but as the reader I was left wondering why I was still reading this book. This was a tedious read.

I was a bit disappointed with this book. Parts of it are funny, some parts are touching but it just wasn't enough of either for me to "really like" it.
