9780099564690: The Surprising Life of Charlie Glass (size 18 and a bit)

It's fair to say that Charlie Glass is carrying a little excess baggage - emotionally and physically. For years her excess weight means she's been the butt of her skinny stepmother and half sisters' jokes, and she's had enough. So, after a few weeks at a boot camp, Charlie returns slim, gorgeous and ready to run the shoe firm that, to her sisters' annoyance, she has inherited from their beloved father. And when she bags a glamorous boyfriend, her transformation is complete. Life is almost perfect (skinny stepmother aside), but her best friend Lucy seems resentful, Ferdy, the man she has secretly adored for years, apparently preferred her the way she was, and the constant battle to stay thin and beautiful is torture. Would it really matter if the weight crept back on? There's only one way to find out.

About the Author:

Angela Woolfe has wanted to be a writer ever since discovering that the nuns at her junior school would let her off maths homework if she wrote a story instead. After unexpected detours via law, magazine journalism, and even musical theatre, she began writing her first novel in 2011. Holly lives with her husband in London. She still avoids maths.

Review:

"A romantic and funny battle-of-the-bulge read for every woman living in fear of the scales" Closer "Curl up with this novel for an afternoon of comfort reading" Daily Mail "This modern retelling of the Cinderella story is great fun" Sunday Mirror "Lighthearted and satisfyingly witty" Wales on Sunday "If you've struggled with your weight, you'll identify with Charlie Glass" Yours Magazine
