I can't believe I finished this book in just 5 hours. Jane Green has a wonderful style of writing. The commentaries, the acerbic wit was absolutely delightful to read.

I think any woman can relate to our heroine, Jemima Jones. She like most of women today is battling her weight and insecurities of life. Experiencing racism on a different level.

This is a wonderful coming of age novel, even at 27! We truly see Jemima blossom from an ugly duckling to a graceful funny swan. Jemima eventually by befriending a once enemy eventually finds true love and the job of her dreams.

This is a great feel good book.

This copy did take a small bath with me, lol. Still readable, just not PC worthy.

This was an okay read. The story was a little different than most. Maybe I just wish I could find that same willpower (and time) to work out. Or maybe I'm just getting tired of the genre.
