Hunger: A Memoir of (My) Body - Roxane Gay

I Picked Up This Book Because: I saw some buzz about the book and decided to pick it up.

The Story:

Roxane’s story cannot be neatly summed up in a few words of a review. Her tale is deeply personal. There is tragedy and self depreciation. There are realizations that most wouldn’t want to admit to themselves let alone write on paper and send it out into the world. I sincerely hope her words reach someone in need of knowing they are not alone and encourage them to get the help we can all be reluctant to get (and I am not talking one bit about her weight). I hope someone reads this or shares passages of this with someone in need of taking the first step on the arduous journey of becoming happy with themselves. Not just their body but their inner self. To realize they have worth and that they deserve happiness.
