In this extraordinary coming-of-age odyssey, Wally Lamb invites us to hitch a wild ride on a journey of love, pain, and renewal with the most heartbreakingly comical heroine to come along in years. Meet Dolores Price. She's 13, wise-mouthed but wounded, having bid her childhood goodbye. Stranded in front of her bedroom TV, she spends the next few years nourishing herself with the Mallomars, potato chips, and Pepsi her anxious mother supplies. When she finally orbits into young womanhood at 257 pounds, Dolores is no stronger and life is no kinder. But this time she's determined to rise to the occasion and give herself one more chance before she really goes under.

Especially the thing with the fish. I was very close ...
Still thinking about my star rating....(edit) I think I will stay with three stars. I know that I am not a big fan of dysfunctional family dramas (for the most part, since there always is the exception!)and would probably not pick this one up again.The focus is on Dolores who as a child suffers thro...
My friend said this was good, so when I found this on sale, I bought it, attempted to read it, but it failed to engage me. Maybe someday I'll finish it, who knows? If anyone can persuade me, then do try to persuade me. :)
