        Like Elvis, I was born in Tupelo, Mississippi And while I m not the King or Queen of anything that I know of, I do have a white steed, a noble knight, and a royal court Ok, I m lying I have a brown chiweenie, a buck wild toddler, and if we line our Cars cars up just right I have lived in the Wild Wild West, but don t live there any because I discovered that some people belong in the south and I am one of those people Humidity, as it turns out, is not such a bad thing after all Neither are thunderstorms Plus I have a deep love and genuine appreciation for normal sweet tea, fresh seafood, SEC football, and large bodies of salty water So now I live in Florida I have a B.A in English from the University of Mississippi and I m a life long fan of the Ole Miss Rebels I also have an M.A in Secondary Education from the University of Alabama, which gives me the right yell Roll Tide every now and then Despite my solid educational background, my work history is what you might call checkered if you wanted to be nice It ranges from dispatching at my father s trucking company to teaching high school Spanish to temping at a technology consulting firm in Colorado Springs, Colorado Another thing about me One day, I decided to write a book It s called Diary of a Mad Fat Girl and I think it s pretty funny Maybe you might think it s funny too


    1. If you are prudish, in any way, DON'T READ THIS BOOK! This story is not for the prim hearted. I thought it was HYSTERICALLY FUNNY! I laughed out loud many times while reading it & I think that is well worth the 99 cents I paid for it. What a group of characters & what a story line! I would love to know if it's based on actual events & people or if the author's imagination is that twisted. Even though it was a little amateurish in parts, the author shows talent & the story was hig [...]

    2. OMG! This book was so hilarious, it totally turned my bad day around! I didn't read this book because it was profound or well-written, or because of the character development (and I suggest that you look elsewhere if that's what you're looking for). Ace and her friends were wonderful. The story was rolling-on-the-floor funny! It's a relatively short story about Ace Jones and her adventures trying to sort out her life and the lives of her friends. The things that come out of her mouth, are the sa [...]

    3. Being in a car for six hours was the only reason I made it through the novel by Stephanie McAfee entitled Diary of a Mad Fat Girl. The back cover claimed it was action-filled and hilarious, so who could blame me for being optimistic as I began the first chapter. To my dismay, each chapter made me more disappointed as I found the main character, Graciela Jones, a 30-year old robust art teacher who goes by Ace, hard to relate. Although the author’s intent was to portray Ace as an assertive woman [...]

    4. OK, two and a half stars. There are flashes of real talent here--the deadpan, hilarious voice of the narrator is terrific, about 3/4 of the time. She's the take-no-prisoners friend with whom you hung out in your 20s (or 30s), while you tried to figure out what you were doing with your life. Ace is mercilessly and drily cynical--on herself, on her friends, on the town where she lives. A vastly entertaining trainwreck.But the rest of the characters are unevenly developed. The school principal is a [...]

    5. I only bought this because it was .99 and looked cute. I definately got more than .99 worth of laughter. I repeatedly had snot, tears and full on laughter in front of my family who was clueless as to what was going on with me. Ace cracked me up the way she talked. This is not appropriate to recommend to my bible study girlfriends because of language and the secular lifestyle but I found it hilarious rather than offensive when I read it. You just have to know it is a hilarious secular easy read w [...]

    6. Reviewed By~AprilReview Copy Provided By~PublisherAbsolutely freaking amazing! Diary of a Mad Fat Girl is a roller coaster ride of emotion like few other books I have had the pleasure of reading. I laughed (out-loud in a library), felt my eyes fill with tears, got extremely torqued off, felt bursts of happiness and got rather irked off at the main character and wanted to smack her at times. I knew going into this story that I would like it – or at least I had a pretty good inkling that I would [...]

    7. Diary of a Mad Fat Girl was a nice distraction in the dentist's waiting room and on a particularly uneventful car ride. It was light and in some places so funny that the laughter literally burst out of me. But for the most part I found the plot completely contrived and uneven, the characters underdeveloped and unlikable, and came away with the feeling that I must have missed whole chapters or only gotten half of the story. The book centers around Ace, a 30s Southern woman with a couple of extra [...]

    8. It is funny, it is hilarious, it has some weird adventures, it is serious. It is certainly not a bad book. Really, this is a good book. with a good breezy writing and a unique MC, I don't see why you wouldn't enjoy it. and yetI don't like this book. I hardly even like it.I'm still waiting for that understanding and love to comeThis is a book I feel bad for not liking, and I know the reason. Sense of Humor. It's not that I'm a hard person to please, I laugh easily. you can tell a good knock knock [...]

    9. Stephanie McAfee is hilarious, but not any kind of 'correct'. She can infuses her humor into all of her characters. The main character in this book is a friend who has your back, no matter what. She is endearing, but sometimes you want to slap her and her you. I liked the story. It was creative and entertaining. I felt I was rooting for those who seemed like the underdog and wanted to see the demise of the "mean".

    10. This is a bust a gut funny and also sad story. The circumstances surrounding the story are sad but it is dealt with a laugh out loud and sensitive way. It show what girlfriends can really do with they stick together.

    11. Diary of a Mad Fat Girl - By: Stephanie McAfeeThis is a totally brain-less read and I am amazed that it hit the New York Times e-book bestseller list! Now we get to read it with all they typos and grammatical errors taken care of and in dead-tree form!While I didn’t find any grammatical errors or typos (but I really wasn’t looking too hard!) I did find a story that is so highly unbelievable for mature (30 and soon to b e over 30), intelligent, college educated, world traveled women. I can ap [...]

    12. Like the rating says, it was ok. I had a really hard time getting into this book. The writing was bad. The editing was bad. It took me until I got about 3/4 of the way through this book to finally get into it. The writing was bad because almost the entire book was dialogue! And not just any dialogue, entire paragraphs being spoken back and forth. The characters always knew just what to say. No one was really likeable and the story was VERY predictable. I could have told you how it ended before t [...]

    13. Although I really didn't care much for all the profanity, sex, and infidelity, I found myself turning page after page to find out what was going to happen next. I didn't enjoy the book, but I couldn't put it down either.Loud, outspoken Graciela Jones, aka Ace, is a young high school art teacher who recently left her boyfriend and returned to Bugtussle Mississippi with her chiweenie, Buster Loo. The drama begins when her best friend Lily bails out on a trip to Florida to spend time with a man she [...]

    14. I am shocked this book received as many positive comments as it did. It had some redeeming qualities so I felt that I couldn't give it only one star, but it was nothing like what I expected. The main character, Ace, is an unrealistic and exhausting character who (although a teacher) finds it appropriate to hurl child-like insults and curse words constantly at the people around her. Ace and her friend set out to find proof that their friend's abusive husband is cheating on her. During the course [...]

    15. I am ashamed that I finished this one. Ace, she was the weakest character I have ever had the displeasure of reading. This 30 year old woman, a teacher, acted like a 12 year old spoiled teenager. She would turn on her friends in a second, cheat, lie and talk behind everyones back. I couldn't find one redeemable trace in her personality. So why did I keep going ? The other characters, the ones that put up with her horribleness. I was waiting for them to tell her to piss off, I needed it.I even fe [...]

    16. I wanted to slap the main character for most of the book. She was so angry all the time! And yet she still ended up with the guy! And it was never really explained why they split in the first place. She's got a horrible work ethic, and repeatedly makes terrible decisions. But all of this is justified because the other people are all just a bit worse. Why is it okay to take revenge, or encourage someone else to, or to have a bad work ethic because hey, your boss has done something worse? These ar [...]

    17. I think author Stephanie is off to a good start. Diary has good 'bones' - but, the one thing that I learned in my high school creative writing class - don't use words like "sparkle" to describe eyes. Skip cliches or use them sparingly. Every other page it seemed I was groaning whenever I read a well worn cliche. There is quite a sense of humor there, and as everyone mentioned, the ending is very very lacking. Almost as if you wonder if the 3/4 of the book you read was in some other book! I bough [...]

    18. This book made me chuckle, but it also dealt with some serious issues as well. It starts like a bat out of hell, but Ace (the main character and narrator) will settle in and calm down after the first two chapters set up the book a little. This is not a book for somebody who is easily offended. You're going to hear about penis' and bitches and you need to be okay with that. I have one complaint. I thought the Ace and Mason storyline dragged. That said the penis' and bitches I mentioned above, alo [...]

    19. I bought this in the Kindle store for 99 cents and I want my money back!I couldn't get very far in this at all because the heroine was completely unlikeable. She was foul, mean, treated her best friend like crap and called the vagina a 'cooter'. Oh no! Just awful.

    20. I seem to be spending a lot of time these days debating what to say about a book I’ve just read. "Diary," for example, was an entertaining read that I finished in a matter of hours. The story, however, is a train wreck from beginning to end, and this makes me question my taste level in literature. Further, the novel is written in the first person which, with rare exception, drives me crazy. In this book, however, it is almost necessary: Without the removal of the narrator, and more time spent [...]

    21. A solid three stars. It was easy chick-lit fluff, perfect for those breaks between sturdier stuff, but that doesn't just give you a pass as a writer. If you're going to write easy chick-lit fluff, have some standards.My dislikes:What's with the title? It has nothing to do with the story, Ace is not even known as a "fat girl", she just likes pizza and beer and she's not a size two.An antagonist who is schtupping every female around in parking lots and next to dumpsters, yet no one in this very sm [...]

    22. Well I just don't know what was better, getting to read this book or getting to meet the author at the Arkansas Literary Festival in Little Rock. Before I review the book, let me tell its brief but amazing story. Stephanie was a teacher who wanted to write a book. She decided to release it through three venues as an ebook on Christmas day, to catch all those folks who had just gotten Nooks and Kindles from Santa. She sold the ebook for 99 cents and in seven months it had been downloaded 145,000 [...]

    23. I might say this is not the cover of the book I read and I liked mine better but the book is the same. So, the review:Oh my! When you live in Bugtussle, Mississippi everyone knows your business. EVERYONE. Which is one reason that Graciela Jones (Ace) is a bit wary when her ex-boyfriend comes back to town. She can’t turn around without someone telling her she should never have left him, what he’s doing at the exact moment and where he is and with whom. Her dog has even forsaken her lap for hi [...]

    24. The book started with teenage Graciela Jones a.k.a "Ace" moving to a new town, meeting new friends and bonding with her soon to be life-long friends Lilly,Mason, and Ethan Allen. moving on to collage and we meet Chloe. Flash-forward again to present time 30-year-old Ace, an Art teacher in her old high school, with both Lilly and Chloe as fellow teachers, Ethan Allen has a bar, Mason is somewhere else being a lawyer. That was the back story, now let the story begin!But it doesn'tAce is funny,espe [...]

    25. Lisrened to Diary of a Mad Fat Girl (Mad Fat Girl #1) by Stephanie McAfee Graciela "Ace" Jones is mad—mad at her best friend Lilly who cancels their annual trip to Panama City for mysterious reasons; at her boss Catherine for "riding her ass like a fat lady on a Rascal scooter;" at her friend Chloe's abusive husband; and especially at Mason McKenzie, the love of her life, who has shown up with a marriage proposal three years too late. Ace is never mad, though, at her near-constant companion, a [...]

    26. Ace Jones and a balls to wall type of girl. Who doesn't care what you think of her and she will tell that with a smile on her face while holding her beloved dog named Buster Loo. She may be balls to the wall and doesn't give a rats ass what you think of her but she has one thing that makes her insecure and that's Mason Mckenzie her long time on and off again boyfriend she's known since she was 11. She loves him with all she has but hates how she feels that she can't trust him, she lives him in F [...]

    27. While it was entertaining, the main character never develops from the pushy, brassy, loud, obnoxious, crude, angry woman that she is in the beginning. None of the characters really grow, except maybe Chloe, and aspects of her growth concern me. This was slightly chuckle-worthy, but it relied too much on easy, crude humor rather than wit. Also, it had cliche after cliche. And the main character constantly describes herself basically like an over-weight troll, but there are still plenty of attract [...]
