Fat ChanceNe's heyday' Irish Independent'She's a straight shooter honest and to the point' The HeraldLouise McSharry's passion is to talk to young women and the men who love them about being a woman in the modern world Drawing on her own years of life she writes about everything from surviving a messed up childhood to crashing out of education and still making it to figuring out sex weight feminism make up friendship workplace politics and a whole lot Though she has the raw material the early death of her father and being taken into care at seven because of her mother's alcoholism the last thing Louise wanted do was to write a misery memoir She wasn't keen on writing a cancer survival story either she went through treatment while planning her wedding trying on white dresses while sweating and hairless not a good lookSo though it has its sad moments Fat Chance is honest upbeat irreverent and inspirational just like a long chat with a best friend A fabulous funny and wise best frien.

    FREE READ ´ Fat Chance Fat Chanceis an incredibly honest and inspiring memoir about growing up under tough circumstances with an alcoholic mother and also what it means to be ‘fat’ and what bodies are there for Here’s a story we don’t hear very often woman loses weight Woman is praised for losing weight Woman is losing weight because she has cancer But it’s common than you might think and the idea of weight loss as only a ‘bad thing’ if one is of an ‘acceptable’ weight already is downright dangerous If the ‘beach ready body’ bullshit has crept its way inside your brain have a read of this
