    Thank you NetGalley and K.A. Barson for the opportunity to read this ARC in exchange for an honest review.

    When we think of a book addressing body issues, most of us want to gag, right? I mean, usually it is about someone totally un-relateable and it just makes us want to stuff another cookie in our mouths. But this book was delightfully different!

    Ann is a very wonderful character, she is strong but I can also imagine that she feels depressed. She is overweight, no matter what she tries, as soon as she is done with a diet she gains the weight back.

    But now her Aunt Jackie (who was a really kick-ass woman) is getting married and she wants to fit in a dress a few sizes less. She starts a diet (comes in problem with paying it and so), she loses weight, discovers things about her family, and meets a very very cute boy.
