    Misadventures of Fatwoman by Julie Elizabeth Powell: Andi recalls her life as a baby, always eating and then as a child in school and all the terrors of being big and going on a date. Even as a young mother she would go on diets to help lose weight and they never worked. Although her daughter makes fun of her she continues to go to the Fat Club meetings. Episodes of falling before she got to meet up with her first date and spilling everything from her purse, roller skating and falling, were some things that continued to happen to her because of her weight and loss of balance. She still volunteered at the local senior center teaching them how to use computers. She also got up before everybody else and swam, liking the feeling of the water. Things are looking up, she's lost a few pounds and even found a new dress that looked good on her as her husband accepted an award and money at work. Their cruise was coming up soon and she'd be 40. Talent show, would it give her the confidence she... More > needed. Her friend Sally is a lifesaver with help for the costume and motivation. She doesn't trust her husband when she found a button from a hotel. She confronts him with the information.< Less

    Misadventures of Fatwoman (Julie Elizabeth Powell) This is the story of Andi, an average woman who happens to be overweight. She struggles with low self esteem, and is trying to raise a family. She has issues with security and fidelity, since her first husband had cheated on her numerous times. Emotional at times, yet humorous, we see the struggles a large woman has in society. We can feel Andis emotions as she is ridiculed and scorned. We can also see the struggles in every day life, in simple tasks as sitting on a stool or fitting in a washroom stall. Another great read by Julie Elizabeth Powell
