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 shereally goes under.

Wally Lamb's fiction and nonfiction have appeared in Pushcart Prize XV: Best of the Small Presses; The Best of the Small Presses; The Best of the Missouri Review; Streetsongs 1: New Voices in Fiction; Northeast and The New York Times Magazine. He is the recipient of an NEA grant for fiction, and is a Missouri Review William Peden fiction prize winner. A nationally honored teacher of writing, and a graduate of the Vermont College MFA's Writing Program, Lamb lives in Connecticut with his wife and their three children. He is also the author of I Know This Much Is True.

  • She's Come Undone

    I picked this book up accidentally and on one rainy weekend I read the whole thing hardly breaking because I always wanted to know what happens to her next! This book made me feel like I was reading her private diary! Wonderful, very funny and sad for her (just a little) at times. I loved it so much and had never heard of the author Wally Lamb before, but now I have just bought another book by him and can't wait to get it started! Simply, a must read for all!

    I finished this book in a few days. (I have toddlers so it usually takes me a week to read a decent book.) It was very engaging. I also liked the fact that I couldn't see Hollywood turning it into a movie. It was a real readers book.
