I often read in bed, and Fat Chance passed the toothbrush test: that is, while brushing my teeth, I found myself looking forward to getting into bed with Fat Chance (the book, not the character). Half the books I buy don’t do that for me–and I don’t keep reading them. I’m a little fussy. On that note I’ll add that, like a lot of books published today, Fat Chance could have used another proof-reading and a little more editing. But that didn’t stop me from having fun with it.
