A Novella of Bugtussle, MississippiBack in Bugtussle, Mississippi, after her relationship with her ex-fiancé has fallen apart, Ace Jones is naturally depressed. What’s worse is that every time she leaves the house, she winds up in some kind of altercation. She can’t help but wonder if she’s an idiot magnet, or if she’s the smart-mouth stirring things up. Hoping for a little peace of mind, Ace gives in to the advice of her best friend and goes to see a therapist. But she quickly discovers that the road to nirvana isn’t what it’s cracked up to be. And as Ace goes from one therapeutic misadventure to another, the plus-sized spitfire becomes more determined than ever to find enlightenment—even if it means bending herself into a pretzel to do it.Includes excerpts from Diary of a Mad Fat Girl, Happily Ever Madder, and Down and Out in Bugtussle.
Stephanie McAfee was born in Tupelo, Mississippi, and now lives in Colorado with her husband, young son, and chiweenie dog.
