SUCH A PRETTY FACE by Cathy Lamb

SUCH A PRETTY FACE by Cathy Lamb, (c) 2010. This nice trade paperback was so enjoyable to read.  Stevie is a formerly obese woman, who had a heart attack at age 32 and then chose surgery to save her life. So then she pared down 170 pounds and weighed a nice 150 pounds at 5′ 7″ tall and she was beautiful just like her mother who was a former Broadway star before her insanity showed up in her early 20’s. Stevie ate to deal with her grief and pain after her Schizophrenic mother committed suicide and tried to kill Stevie and her little sister Sunshine by drowning in the nearby river. Afterwards with her mother and sister gone, a traumatized Stevie is still be raised by her mother’s parents whom they lived with during her mother’s illness. After their deaths Stevie ate to deal with the pain and loneliness and plumped up to a major 325 pounds. Shortly after her grandfather and then her grandmother died and Stevie was sent to live with her mother’s sister Janet and her family, which wasn’t the best thing for Stevie since her uncle was such a cruel person, making everyone’s life miserable who lived in his house including his two children Lance and Polly. Everyone in that family including Stevie had emotional issues and trauma to deal with. It was an interesting book although I get a little bored with the flashbacks.
