The Sweet Potato Queens are back and bawdier than ever in Southern belle extraordinaire Jill Conner Browne’s ninth edition of the hysterical series. Having experienced pretty much ALL of the crappy parts of life, Browne feels it is her duty to render whatever assistance she can to her fellow sufferers - and she does so in her own inimitable fashion.
Her father taught her there are very few situations in life that we really and truly cannot change, and it is up to us to figure out how to either make fun OUT of them - or make fun OF them. And fortunately for the rest of us, Browne is well equipped for both. Including the exploits of the Queen contingent and her family, she delivers applicable tidbits like:
Thinking or talking about watermelon can save any negative situation.
If you get drunk in Scotland, you can’t have your cow with you.
When sanity and reason fail, you can always cheerfully resort to ridicule.
Denial means that every situation is perfectly perfect.
More fun than a Cracker Barrel full of monkeys, Fat Is the New 30 will change your life - or at least give you ideas for making fun of your own self.

DO NOT PURCHASE THE AUDIO VERSION!!!!!!!
I am a HUGE fan of Jill Conner Browne and all of the Sweet Potato Queen books, however this audio book was SO SO SO horrible I could not listen to this for more than 5 minutes! I read the other reviews and thought to myself "wow they are being really nit-picky" - NO THEY ARE BEING HONEST!! She reads SO SO SO SLOW it is PAINFUL!!! It is like she takes a full breath between each and every single word! I can't even comment on the storyline because I was so distracted by how horrible the audio was!
Read faster... speed it up like the Sweet Potato Queen books!
Can't comment... didn't listen long enough!
DO NOT PURCHASE!!!

I love listening to Jill Conner Browne talk. I love her voice and the way she tells stories, I could listen to her talk all day. By the end of this book, I was even thinking in my head with a little southern draw.
I love the positive outlook, she always tells tome great stories that will make you laugh, but makes sure to pull at your heart strings a little bit too.
