Can the curvy girls have their cake and eat it?
Meet best friends Pixie, Ellie, Katie and Jane. Fed up with always struggling to lose weight, they start a social club where size doesn’t matter. Soon it’s the most popular place to be – having fun instead of counting carbs. And the girls suddenly find their lives changing in ways they never imagined.
But outside the club, things aren’t as rosy, as they struggle with the ups and downs of everyday life.
In this funny, heart-warming read about normal women learning to love themselves, the curvy girls soon realise that no matter what life throws at them, together, anything is possible . . .
My Review: I am not a fan of chicklit but read this book for my book club. I expected a light rom com about losing weight and finding love with a couple of Lol moments. How wrong was I? This is a must read book for every girl aged 8 to 88. This book has made me rethink my attitude to diets and weight loss and people’s perception to being overweight. I am sure that every female can identify with something in this book and it is a credit to Michele Gorman that this book tackles this weighty issue with such compassion and humour. 4.5 stars from me.
