Being a plus-size woman, I'm hooked. I also like the idea of the author developing her story through various formats.

I had seen on Goodreads that you read this, but it reminded me of Big Summer. Maybe I should read it. Great review! Loved your answers! Have a nice Sunday!

Sounds like an interesting book (I too am interested as a plus size woman!) Writing a story using -texts, blog posts, online celebrity news sites, message boards may be a new way of writing. I saw a movie called "The Search" which was put together the same way.
