I have come to love all of these memoir-ish books that feel like home, friends, and laughter. Lincee Ray is absolutely hysterical and her book, Why I hate green beans, is pure joy. Any woman can easily relate to Lincee and her story of growing up and taking life as it comes.
Like Lincee, I can remember my insecurities in high school like yesterday. I am not sure any woman has ever felt confident about her body…ever. The very thought of being weighed in high school…daily…makes me want to puke a bit. I would love to weigh what I weighed when I though I was fat!! For real! Lincee is honest and genuine about all of her experiences. Reading Why I hate green beans was truly like sitting with a girlfriend and telling stories, laughing all night, and getting little sleep in the process. I did go to bed super late these last few nights as I devoured this book!
Like me, you may find yourself googling Hot Stix after reading this book! I don’t know about you, but these curler type stix sound totally ideal!! I found myself wondering how I had missed Hot Stix in their heyday! Lincee Ray and I are close in age…surely I would have know about Hot Stix?! I requested a copy of Why I hate green beans from the publisher. It sounded similar in nature to books by Melanie Shankle (Big Mama) and Sophie Hudson (Boo Mama). These women all know how to live and laugh. I feel like its safe to say that Lincee Ray is the same way. I was not required to give this book a positive review. If you read it, I know you will enjoy as much as I did! I have not been compensated..in case you were wondering.
