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.
Erin C. (Edog) reviewed Revenge of the Paste Eaters : Memoirs of a Misfit on
Helpful Score: 2
After years of buying exercise equiptemnt that ended up gathering dust on her back porch, Cherly Peck has decided she is in shape - and her shape is round...Revenge of the Paste eaters is ironic, funny, moving and honest. It is a book for everyone that hated the idea of the senior prom...
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.
