Black Caucus Ala Literary Award WINNER


“Poignant and realistic…winning and absorbing…serious and funny…a lovable soul-searching heroine readers will sympathize with, and root for.” —Publishers Weekly


“Engaging…a study in resilience, told with warmth and humor…More than being about bigotry as found in race, gender and size, All of Me is about the importance of knowing who you are and why you’re here…This is a book that deserves attention.” —The Dallas Morning News


“A moving story of a sister’s struggle with weight, health, and self-respect.” —Essence


“A great new read.” —Mademoiselle


“Berry tackles the subject of weight with humor and tact…Excellent.” —Booklist


“Through flashbacks, reminiscences, notes from her journal, and excerpts from sessions with her therapist, readers come to know and like this feisty woman, who has much more to give herself and those she loves than she realizes. Women of all races will find All of Me funny, sad, inspiring, and delightful.” —Library Journal


“A welcome respite during this season of weight-loss resolutions…If Berry’s latest is true to form, it will enjoy the success of her debut effort, So Good.”—

The Washington Post


“By exposing one woman’s secret battle with the bulge, Berry’s fast-paced novel may be just the stimulant we need to encourage more dialogue among sisters…peppered with just enough humor…Entertaining and realistic…Readers of all shapes and sizes will be inspired.”—Black Issues Book Review
