I loved everything about this book and Gabourey Sidibe. I've never watched anything she's been in, and have only seen her be totally charming in interviews. The book buzz intrigued me so I gave it a swing. She's as charming and funny and honest on the page as in interviews. Her family and life stories are fascinating, and it was a fast and fun read. I was sad for it to end, and I'm definitely going to check out her acting work.
