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.

"Dolores Price is a smart-mouthed child who grows into a 257-pound, unhappy adult. Price's trials and misadventures are recounted in this tale, which is one of the books from Oprah Winfrey's reading list. Reading competently, Najimy does little to differentiate the characters. Still in her alternately quiet and strident telling of this story Najimy makes Price sound like a real person. M.B.K. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine"
