Introduction

Many book clubs have written Lisa asking for questions to guide their discussion, so Lisa came up with a bunch for each book. Her goal in writing books is to entertain, so it goes without saying that Lisa wants you to have lots of fun discussing her books, and has reflected that in her questions. She provides the talking points, and you and your group shape the conversation. So go ahead, get together, chat it up with your friends, discuss books, kids, and relationships, but by all means, have fun.

Questions Do we like Bennie? Do we care that she's not so pretty? Do we picture her as pretty? Why did Lisa make her so damn tall? Hint: Wish fulfillment. Does Bennie need a man? No hints. Do we like her partner and lover, Mark? Did he do the right thing or is he a jerk? Do we hate Eve or is she just young and beautiful and it's not her fault. Hint: IT IS HER FAULT. What is it with animal rights people? What about violence in the name of a cause? Or a religion? What does Bennie's relationship with her mother tell you about her? How realistic is this portrayal of depression and its effects on the family? Does Lisa actually know what she's talking about for a change, or is it just her usual make-it-up and see-if-it-sticks? What do we think about Hattie? About Bennie's relationship to her? Why does Bennie keep the kitten? Isn't Jamie 17 a stupid name for a cat? What's up with the cat? How many people don't know that you should not feed Snickers to kittens? Would you be amazed to learn that poor Lisa gets a zillion emails a year about how she is espousing the feeding of Snickers to kittens? What should she do about this? What is the kitten's name in the end?
