The Next Big Thing



The Next Big Thing by Johanna Edwards

It's always a good sign when Jennifer Weiner is blurbed on the front of a novel with a cute cover and lots of pink. ;-)

This is a fun, feisty read for anyone with a few extra pounds, a love of reality TV, or looking for a cute chick lit book. Kat is overweight, and plans to shed the pounds before meeting her internet "boyfriend" in London. What's a girl to go? Go on a reality show called "Fat to Fabulous", of course...

I spend through this title, and really enjoyed (and empathized!) with Kat's character. Cute!

That sounds a little like the book "Jemima J"...did you read that one? It was good.

It *did* remind me of Jemima J (which I also enjoyed!) because of the whole "boyfriend overseas" thing, but other than that, the characters and settings are pretty different. It was a fun read!

It was a great book and had me bursting out laughing.
