The review of this Book prepared by Holly Lindsey

Jemima Jones is overweight and in love with her office mate, Ben Williams. Ben, unfortunately, likes Jemima, but will love her better once she has lost half her body mass so Jemima can pursue her Internet lover in California. The writing is good-- a lovely Cinderella story with a sarcastic omniscient narrator-- but the story is troubling and cliched.
