Big & Fabulous
The time for BIG & Fabulous, The Life and Times of Brenda Cankles is now! The emphasis is on positive body image,Big & Fabulous is a truly entertaining story that's strongly written,funny, insightful and bitingly smart. Inside it's covers, readers will find no shortage of acidly hilarious accounts of the highs and lows of living life inside a big and fabulous body.
With an eye for detail, an ear for well-tuned dialogue and an incredible grasp of the obvious, all honed while performing stand-up comedy in Los Angeles and improvisational theater in San Francisco, Sherman adds just enough bawdiness to deliver a character-driven contemporary novel that will have the reader laughing and connecting with major and minor characters.
Randi lives in California's wine country, finds a reason to laugh everyday and doesn't take herself too seriously. Risk and change are two of Randi's favorite things in addition to carbohydrates, sugar and a great cocktail.
I really liked the part of the book that focused on Brenda's childhood. The scene with the children's Cinderella play and how Prince Charming and the Fairy Godmother told her that she was special and that she could be a princess or a superhero was well written. I liked the bit of commentary from adult Brenda too as it added a nice taste of humor. The author truly create a well rounded and well developed character in Brenda because she could easily be the reader's friend and it is easy to picture her and her actions throughout the book.
