5.0 out of 5 stars Emotional and funny read, 13 Jan. 2012
By 
This review is from: My Boyfriend Wrote a Book About Me (Paperback)
This was recommended to me via a fitness/weight loss blog I read and it did not disappoint. Hilary is candid about her life experiences as a woman with a 'fat ass' and her quest to try to lose weight and succeed on the LA dating scene while trying to make it as a comedian/writer.

It starts with Hilary discovering that her ex has written a book that calls her fat and catalogues their relationship in a way that isn't very positive, all couched as a fiction book. To combat this - and defend herself - Hilary decided to write about her life in an open way, truthfully, and without pretending (as her ex appeared to do) that these things happened to fictional characters - it is her life told as she saw it.

The stories are hilarious, but written in a sweet and often self-depriciating way. Always with total honesty. It is an enjoyable read for anyone who has ever been called fat by an ex or who has ever struggled with their weight or dating. Highly recommended.
