150 Pounds: A Novel of Waists and Measures
by Kate Rockland
Genre: Women's Fiction
Review: A non-sappy novel about how to truly accept yourself and your body. I was surprised by this novel, because the story and character development were central, not always focusing on weight loss. The story follows Skinny Chick blogger Alexis, who at 100 lbs obsessively works out and weighs her food. Shoshana, of Fat and Fabulous blogger fame, has a full life of friends, family, and feels mostly happy with her body. After starring on Oprah, their lives, and weights begin to change. Alexis meets chef Noah, Shoshana inherits an apple orchard.
Make this your first feel-good novel of the summer!
