This book is vulgar and all around unpleasant. It features a fourteen-year-old girl who regularly uses profanity and does drugs. There was also a raunchy scene of a sexual nature with the girl.
Frances is average height and twenty pounds overweight, but the author makes her sound like she is a beast. Every other page there is a passage about how fat she is and how all the other women are pretty and thin. Frances herself was apparently a hot looker when she was thin...twenty pounds ago. So gaining twenty pounds makes you bigger than king kong, but losing them makes you thin? How stupid is that?
I have read that this book is loosely based on the serial killers Karla Homolka and her boyfriend. If I had known that, I never would have bothered.
