"Mine is a story of craving: an unreliable account of lusts and troubles that began, somehow, in 1956 on the day our free television was delivered…"
Meet Dolores Price. She’s thirteen, wise-mouthed but wounded, having bid her childhood good-bye. Beached like a whale 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 rolls 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 really going belly-up.
At once a fragile girl and a hard-edged cynic, so tough to love yet so inimitably lovable, Dolores is as poignantly real as our own imperfections. She’s Come Undone includes a promise: you will never forget Dolores Price.

Well I can tell you I,ve finished I know this much is True some time ago and now reading She's come undone. I am at page 88, something like that and I do like it. It is easier to get into then the other book by Mr lamb. (I loved that book but it took me a long time to really get into it)
Update June 24
Finished the book last night. It was an interesting book. Sometimes so sad and sometimes funny.
What i liked about it was that you never knew what would happen. like you see in most books.
when a girl is fat, she will suddenly by magic loose weight and is beautiful again (which means thin in most books)
I like dark books, and consider this one to be one.
I would give it a 7,5 to a 8 minus cause sometimes to many bad stuff happened, but that will have to be an 8
