Such a Pretty Fat : One Narcissist's Quest To Discover if Her Life Makes Her Ass Look Big, Or Why Pie is Not The Answer
A NOTE FROM JEN LANCASTER:
"To whom the fat rolls...I'm tired of books where a self-loathing heroine is teased to the point where she starves herself skinny in hopes of a fabulous new life. And I hate the message that women can't possibly be happy until we all fit into our skinny jeans. I don't find these stories uplifting; they make me want to hug these women and take them out for fizzy champagne drinks and cheesecake and explain to them that until they figure out their insides, their outsides don't matter. Unfortunately, being overweight isn't simply a societal issue that can be fixed with a dose healthy of positive self-esteem. It's a health matter, and here on the eve of my fortieth year, I've learned I have to make changes so I don't, you know, die. Because what good if finally being able to afford a pedicure if I lose a foot to adult onset diabetes?"

1 . You may love it or hate it..
Posted January 23, 2010 by Nicky , NYCI'm in the middle with this book. She definitely had me captured at first with her raw sense of humor... For a day, I thought I lost the book and almost went crazy when I thought I wouldn't be able to know how it ends.
When I found the book and read the second half, I was disappointed..I won't give away the story, but I will say that I am surprised that anyone would ever write about themself in that way. Not attempt to mask what what a horrible personality she has, but wave it around with pride.
2 . Laugh out loud funny
Posted March 03, 2009 by Kathy , Cottonwood HeightsThis book may be about dieting and a little self help but it's more of an in-your-face kinda book. Jen's wit and humour is contagious and unique. What I enjoyed about this book was how she is able to be true about herself.
