lisa's reviews

Reading is the only thing in the world I am good at. A lifetime of reading, fifteen years of working in bookstores, and libraries, and an obsession with the written word makes me qualified enough to talk someone's ear off about books.  Now I am getting more ARCs than I have room for in the house.  Let me get back to reading them!

45 Pounds (More or Less) - K.A. Barson Although this book had a lot of plot and dialogue flaws, the bones of this story was incredible. It really makes you think about how body image and eating disorders are passed on without anyone realizing it until it's too late. As someone who is a sucker for a novel about a girl/woman trying to lose weight this one was somewhere in the middle. Not as good as Artichoke Heart's by Suzanne Supplee, but a zillion times better than Fat Cat by Robin Brande.
