"This was a good book about a woman trying to hold onto her no longer fat childhood friend. It follows her prepartions for the wedding as a maid of honor in her newly ungrateful and shallow friends wedding but also major life changes for the main character as she stops living in the past frame of mind as a fat girl and discovers the woman that she has always been and all that she is capable of regardless of the scale. A good summer chick lit read!"
"This was pretty good for some light summer reading. If you grew up in the 80's it's was worth the read just for all the 80's references. Without them I probably wouldn't recommend it. It was nice to see an ending that wasn't the typical chick lit ending!"
"This was a good book that provoked strong feelings about the characters. Personally I hated the main character and her actions. It made me sad to see how she and her family chose to live their lives and deal with their interpersonal realtionships but I think that if a book can stir up such a reaction in the reader than it must be a good read although not a pleasurable one."
"I didn't really like this. I read b/c it was also bought by people who read Post Secret but it can't compare. Just basically looking at pictures of trash and half written notes with a couple of really intersting things but most of it was not worthy of making it into the book."
"I thought this was a cute chick lit.It was a pretty amusing reminder of what it's like to look for a job. The best part was the lessons learned section at the end of each chapter which would crack me up more than the actual writing."
"I really wanted to read this after seeing him on Oprah... a year later it was a let down pretty much chapter after chapter of the same thing. That was probably the point, sometimes guys aren't into you get over it and move on. There aren't 100 explanations or ways to analyze their behavior it just made for a redundant read. It is a great book to give to someone who just can't get it through their head that sometimes he's just not that into you!"
