Anyone who says they have only one life to live must not know how to read a book.
This book is: Hilarious. Quietly poignant. Provocative.I really enjoyed Murphy's writing style.
Willowdean Dickson is an incredible character,she's really brave, and she's fat :)
"I’m fat. It’s not a cuss word. It’s not an insult. At least it’s not when I say it."
“I guess sometimes the perfection we perceive in others is made up of a whole bunch of tiny imperfections, because some days the damn dress just won't zip.”

“I've wasted a lot of time in my life. I've thought too much about what people will say or what they're gonna think. And sometimes it's over silly things like going to the grocery store or going to the post office. But there have been times when I really stopped myself from doing something special. All because I was scared someone might look at me and decide I wasn't good enough. But you don't have to bother with that nonsense. I wasted all that time so you don't have to.” - Julie Murphy
