ABOUT THE BOOK
Jennifer Carpenter dreams of being a different person – A person with confidence, a person with beauty, a person who weighs a heck of a lot less.
At twenty-seven, her world falls apart. Whirling from a life that’s crumbling around her, Jennifer devotes herself to the one thing she can control: becoming the ideal version of herself—a thinner version—no matter the cost.
Determined to lose the weight she believes is ruining her life, Jennifer finds herself in danger of losing so much more.
Beautiful, harsh, and truthful in its characterization of a woman who is flawed, yet inspirational.

some writers would ever dare to do for an overweight character.

kind of book that made you look twice at yourself and how you
judge people, how you treat people and most importantly your
self-worth. ... Definitely an amazing read."
