Jemima Jones is overweight. About one hundred pounds overweight. Treated like a maid by her thin and social-climbing roommates, and lorded over by the beautiful Geraldine (less talented but better paid) at the Kilburn Herald, Jemima finds that her only consolation is food. Add to this her passion for her charming, sexy, and unobtainable colleague Ben, and Jemima knows her life is in need of a serious change. When she meets Brad, an eligible California hunk, over the Internet, she has the perfect opportunity to reinvent herself–as JJ, the slim, beautiful, gym-obsessed glamour girl. But when her long-distance Romeo demands that they meet, she must conquer her food addiction to become the bone-thin model of her e-mails–no small feat.
This has to be one of the best books that I’ve read! Any story about an overweight girl losing weight and reaching her goal is a great story already. Now put in an awesome story line and a little bit of romance and I’m reading it! And most-likely loving it! Which is exactly how I feel about this book…. I love it! Jemima is my fictional idol. How great would it feel to be so strong as to make a goal of losing weight, reaching it, and being a bombshell in the end?! Pretty fricken great I’d imagine. I recommend this book to just about anyone.
