The Dumpster: One Woman's Search for Love by Becky Due
When the landlord moves a dumpster below her apartment, Nicole decides to clean up her life. She starts chucking things out the window into the dumpster. Old gifts from boyfriends, her fat clothes, junk food and more. But she still doesn't feel any better, even though she has started to make a change in her life.
But when Nicole stops looking for love, starts working out and taking care of herself, it finds her. The Dumpster is a candid story pulling no punches. There are graphic scenes and some choppy writing, but the story does pull through and it thoroughly entertaining. Author Becky Due gets the message across, even though the characters could have been more developed and the story longer and not so rushed. All in all, a satisfactory read that would be great for the beach.
