Publisher's Summary

The unstoppable, irreverent mother-daughter team presents a new collection of funny stories and true confessions that every woman can relate to. From identity theft to the hazards of bicycling to college reunions and eating on the beach, Lisa and Francesca tackle the quirks, absurdities, and wonders of everyday life with wit and warmth. As Lisa says, "More and more, especially in the summertime when I'm sitting on the beach, I'm learning not to sweat it. To go back to the child that I used to be. To see myself through the loving eyes of my parents. To eat on the beach. And not to worry about whether every little thing makes me look fat. In fact, not to worry at all."
So put aside your worries and join Lisa and Francesca as they navigate their way through the crazy world we live in, laughing along the way.

Critic Reviews

"Scottoline's Philly accent and expressive speaking style add to the humor of the stories. Serritella also sounds approachable as a young woman who is trying to navigate life, friendship, and love in the city. The stories--by and large light, easy, and fun--are perfect for a relaxed summer day." ( AudioFile)

Why have I not read her books before

Would you consider the audio edition of Does This Beach Make Me Look Fat? to be better than the print version?

I have not read the print version, but Lisa is amazing she needs to narrate her books more.

Who was your favorite character and why?

They are both my favorite, I feel like I could relate to both.

Which scene was your favorite?

I enjoyed the part where Lisa mentioned that when something happens to you in life you have to look for the lesson.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When mother Mary passed away, also when Francesca filed her grandmothers nails. I cried it made be think of my grandmother.

Any additional comments?

The book is great, I can't wait to download the rest of her books.
