Review & Giveaway: Lopsided by Meredith Norton



Meredith is trying to figure life out. She's a free spirit who is constantly following her whims. When she finally decides to settle down, she's in Paris with her husband and they have a child. Desperate for a change of scenery, Meredith and her baby boy fly to the US to spend time with her parents. While she's there, she pulls out her boob for her mother's inspection. Her mother's reaction scares Meredith into seeing a doctor. The good news is Meredith hasn't lost her sense of humor and allows you to ride shotgun on the story of her life.

This book is a really fun read. Meredith is an extremely likable person and I truly hope that she uses her writing talent to tell many more stories. If you have boobs, you should read this book. And this isn't a book that's just for the ladies. I actually knew a guy in his early twenties who passed away because of breast cancer.

Check out Meredith's site here.

I want to thank Yen from Penguin Group for sending me this book to review & for allowing me to host a giveaway.

I have two copies of this book to pass along to my wonderful readers. Open to US and Canadian residents. These books will mailed directly from the publisher.

I have a friend that was diagnosed with cancer over 10 years ago. It was quite far along but I'm happy to say with a year or so long with surgery, chemo and all the other nasty things she went through she is still with us.
