ARC This book has a lot of stuff happening in it. It turned out okay though, not something that was great, but not bad either. I thought it had a lot of character, and was funny at times. But I still felt like there was some depth missing in the book. It's about a women named Clem who gets fired from her dream job, so she decides to start her own business called Skinny Bitch. She starts with a cooking class, then she just keeps moving up and she hopes to buy her own restaurant. During all of this she makes a new friend, finds a man to love, and has deals with an ex boyfriend, and her best friend has lots of drama to add to it all. It has a lot of snarky humor, and drama that made the book enjoyable. And the character's were very likable.
