You Don't Sweat Much For A Fat Girl, by Celia Rivenbank

You Don't Sweat Much for a Fat Girl: Observations on Life from the Shallow End of the Pool
I loved Celia Rivenbank's Stop Dressing Your Six-Year Old Like a Skank, so was really excited to read this book, but I felt uncomfortable in many parts.

I realize that hyperbole and snarkiness is kind of her thing, but a section endorsing racial profiling at airports really disturbed me, and I felt like the many pointed jabs at Yankees went far beyond laid-back good humor. That said, it was still a funny and quick read, but overall it was not a feel-good read for me.
