About the book Growing up was difficult for me being overweight, too quiet and really afraid to speak out in order to defend myself. In this book Bertha learns that she needs to let her voice be heard and no longer allows herself to be the scapegoat. Not everyone is beautiful, looks like a model or even dances like the pros, but everyone in the world every child and adult is good at something. Find out what your strengths are and build on them and success will be yours. Bertha also learns in this book how to deal with a family member's disease and how she and her sister Tillie work together to help the other members of her family when grandma gets Alzheimer's. I hope that you enjoy reading about Bertha and Tillie and learn that there is a little bit of her in everyone. Love Bertha, Tillie and Fran Lewis.
