The latest book for the BlogHer Book Club is Diary of a Mad Fat Girl by Stephanie McAfee. Graciela “Ace” Jones and her friends (and her dog, Buster Loo) are from Bugtussle, Mississippi and there is never a dull moment. Try to imagine Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum — but with a house, a dog and a real job.
I read this book while passing the time on my flights to and from New Orleans. It sure was easy to imagine the Southern drawl of the characters, especially after spending a few days in the Big Easy.

The moderator does an excellent job of picking apart bigger picture questions of the book and discussing how it relates to her our lives. The first discussion is about phone calls and texting.
