Day 3 of the BookGiveaway!
She’s Come Undone by Wally Lamb (paperback)
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.
I am currently reading The Hour I First Believed by Wally Lamb, and it is an amazing read so far. She’s Come Undone was everything I’d thought it would be. Lamb creates characters who are wide open. You feel their emotions, their ambitions, and their challenges. Dolores Price deals with self-discovery, body image, depression, and becoming the woman she’s meant to be.
