Sabrina Schrader is mortified by her past. She grew up in a sloppy household where the dishes were always dirty and she could never invite friends over because of the filth. Now, Sabrina has a good career going and a spick-and-span apartment that she’s proud to show
off. Her only problem is the extra weight she carries.
If she could lose some of those pounds, Sabrina thinks her life would be perfect. When Sabrina makes her annual visit home to see her mother, she is shocked by how much the house has deteriorated in just one year. Her mother has added animal hoarding to her bag of
eccentricities, and Sabrina’s childhood home is choked with cast-off furniture, garbage, and cat feces crunching underfoot, not to mention a massive cockroach infestation. While helping with the cleanup, Sabrina unknowingly ingests a cockroach’s egg case, and freakish things begin happening to her body. Without even trying, Sabrina rapidly loses weight, and she finds out that she can no longer eat regular food, only garbage. Sabrina seeks out medical help but is
referred to a psychiatrist specializing in eating disorders after she explains her bizarre symptoms. Then Sabrina starts to lose her hair and teeth, but that’s nothing compared to what she’s growing. Unable to keep her physical transformation a secret, Sabrina loses her job, her boyfriend, and her friends. The only person who can help her now is the one she’s most
afraid of becoming: her mother.

Is this supposed to be funny?
I'm totally grossed out.
This is one of those "get it books". If you get it, great, if you don't, no amount of correct form will entice you to read it. I'm choosing B.
And going to wash my hands.
