      An honest account of what it means to be a fat girl in a skinny world! But don't be fooled, this book is not just for those struggling with weight. It is for anyone who has struggled with anything in life and found a way to claw through to the other side. Archer's prose is beautiful. I couldn't put it down but at the same time was sad when I reached the last page! Can't wait to read more from this author!

      Once I started Fat Girl, Skinny I could not put it down. Amye’s phenomenal writing, humor, and total honesty, drew me in right from page one. Her experience is something that everyone can relate to—and I’m not necessarily talking about a struggle with food. Everyone has been through something. A something where the light at the end of the tunnel seemed dim and unreachable, a something that made us worry our life would swallow us whole if we weren’t careful, a something that made us feel [...]

      The combination of edgy eloquence and unstinting honesty makes this a must-read. Anyone who's ever felt inadequate or unwanted because of body image will relate to Amye and her fight to achieve self-esteem. Spend a few hours with Amye's book, and you'll walk away knowing that you have a soulmate in the struggle.

    • Boylan Erin says:

      I grew up struggling with my weight. I can even remember the day that it first started taking a hit on my self esteem. I was in third grade, and while waiting in line outside for class to begin one morning some of the other students pointed out how, and why my body was different, and therefore ugly. I know that struggle of going on weight watchers, and finally reaching a healthy weight, and then the aftermath when I am thin, and catch myself at the McDonalds drive through window, forgetting so e [...]

      Order this book. Funny, engaging, tender and heart-rending, Archer has a gift with memoir and prose. Her characters are believable and drive the story, making the reader flip the pages. Let me start by saying I am a slow reader with three part-time jobs. I finished this book in under 48 hours. Archer writes with wit, tenderness and an aching truth that will keep her readers hooked until the very last page. Her characters are beautifully explicated; her prose flows like the Susquehanna in the sum [...]

      Loved this memoir! I enjoyed her honesty and her true to life connections. Hoping to see more by her!!

    • Riley says:

      I may be biased because I've had Amye in class and have loved her writing style ever since, but this book is incredible. I have never felt more introspective or confident than while reading this memoir. Amye's voice is vulnerable, realistic, inspiring, and even didactic at times; the varying tones really help her story come to life. I almost forgot it was non-fiction.

    • Lynn Hoff says:

      Great beginning, mediocre end.The beginning of this book was good, drew me in. Dense-in-a good-way, with vivid, riveting descriptions that put me there.Then she got thin, and so did her words. Just wafted off the page like so much steam. Meaningless cliches. Kept hanging in there thinking she'd get her groove again, but nope.

    • Wendy Fontaine says:

      Well-written. Good structure. Universal themes. Readers will find something to relate to, whether they've struggled with weight loss or not. The narrator was introspective and reflective about her personal issues and the growth/change she experienced, but I couldn't help thinking she could have dug a layer or two deeper. Overall, it's a very good book with honest, straight-forward writing.

    • Kelly says:

      Great bookI am going thru the same issues she did and can totally relate. Great book. Helped to motivate me to keep going.

    • Story Circle Book Reviews says:

      Amye Archer draws the reader into her battle of the bulge and so much more. She shares her reflections, questions, and brutal self-loathing as she journeys through a seemingly endless series of poor decisions. Bullied and wounded as a girl because of her weight, she fills the cavernous emotional wounds with secret addictions with food, alcohol, and boys.At 265 pounds and 10 years of marriage, Amye's husband divorces her for a skinnier younger woman leaving Amye floundering. Determined to face he [...]

      After reading the prologue to this book (at weight watchers), I had high hopes for this book. It was good but I expected more. The author was a very immature 28 year old going through the breakup of her marriage, an unfulfilling job and a goal of losing 100 pounds. As a long long time weight watcher member, I can't believe she steadily lost every week drinking like a fish. The book was just too much about throwing herself at every male, drinking and eating fast food. Yes she lives happily ever a [...]

    • Judy Cerra says:

      Amye Archer’s Fat Girl, Skinny is a must read for anyone serious enough to look in the mirror, and knows definitively, they somehow ended up trapped in someone else’s fat body. Her book should be rubber banded with the Weight Watcher’s sliding scale cardboard POINTSfinder calculator. She right away bonds with the reading audience who is struggling with losing weight the healthy way… moderating caloric intake, rather than in a pill or suck-it-out spa! It’s a page turner, the reader is e [...]

      I might not be the person you'd be expecting to read this book, or to rate it five stars, but here we are. I mean, I'm a guy, one's who has never faced having to lose more than thirty poundsbut this book is intense. I felt it, from the beginning, whether I'd ever faced problems that were particularly similar or not. Archer is a stellar writer and this book is a dynamite example of that. It reaches beyond itself, to any kind of reader. Any kind of reader could dig this book.

    • Carolyn says:

      An honest memoir about a woman's struggles to lose weight and start over after her husband leaves her for another woman.

    • Angela F. says:

      Skinny girl can write,Honesty rings in this memoir. Fat girl fights her way to skinny.She gets the great guy and the dream

    • Jennie Lower says:

      Oh my god. Thank you, Amye Archer. Not one superfluous word, every detail needed. I had tears of joy and sadness and hope streaming down my face for the last pages. I really needed this.
