Review & #Rafflecopter #Giveaway: Diary of a Mad Fat Girl by Stephanie McAfee

SYNOPSIS:

Graciela "Ace" Jones is mad-mad at her best friend Lilly who cancels their annual trip to Panama City for mysterious reasons; at her boss Catherine for "riding her ass like a fat lady on a Rascal scooter;" at her friend Chloe's abusive husband; and especially at Mason McKenzie, the love of her life, who has shown up with a marriage proposal three years too late. Ace is never mad, though, at her near-constant companion, an adorable chiweenie dog named Buster Loo.

Ace's anger begins to dissipate as she takes matters into her own hands to take down Chloe's philandering husband-and to get to the bottom of a multitude of other scandals plaguing Bugtussle, Mississippi. Then, she starts to realize that maybe Mason deserves a second chance after all.

With a sharp and distinctive voice, Stephanie McAfee delivers a hilarious and fast-paced tale about Ace Jones and her two best friends-thick as thieves and tough as nails-navigating Southern small-town politics and prejudices, finding love, and standing up for each other all the way.

MY THOUGHTS:

I loved this book!  Diary of a Mad Fat Girl is the perfect novel for any female to curl up with.  I couldn't help but think about the relationships I have with the people in my life.  This book makes for an easy-breezy read that will keep you entertained until the very end.  Warning - you will laugh so hard that your sides will ache!
