    Story
    (19)

    Much has happened to Gabrielle Reece since her 1997 best seller Big Girl in the Middle. She’s still gorgeous, still 6’3”, and a dominant force on and off the beach, but in the last 15 years, she’s settled down with world-class surfer Laird Hamilton and raised three stunning blonde girls. Her life might seem like a fairy tale from afar, but four years after her picture-perfect Hawaiian marriage to Laird, Gabrielle filed for divorce. In the end, the couple worked it out, but My Foot Is Too Big for the Glass Slipper tells the unvarnished and often hilarious tale of the turbulent ups and downs that beset every wife and mother - even the women like Gabrielle who seem to have it all.

    Story
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    My friends, married, single, moms or not, can always benefit from such candor.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love being proved foolish and narrow. I allowed myself to scoff at the prospect of a financially comfortable, beautiful woman living in paradise knowing what it means to devote yourself to a man and children, while scratching and clawing to retain your own identity, but Gabrielle shut that train of thought down right away.


    What does Gabrielle Reece and Karen Karbo bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Reece has a recognizable voice, and it simply wouldn't do to substitute my own inner one, plus for the above reasons, she becomes an instant girls-night pal.


    Any additional comments?

    Do yourself a favor and look beyond the hype about the "submissive" part. It's not anywhere near what you've heard.
