9780140276909: Jemima J

Number one best-seller Jane Green - author of Babyville and Straight Talking - explores reinvention and self-discovery in Jemima J.

Jemima Jones is overweight. About seven stone overweight.

Treated like a slave by her thin and bitchy flatmates, lorded over at the Kilburn Herald by the beautiful Geraldine (less talented, but better paid), her only consolation is food. What with that and her passion for her charming, sexy colleague Ben, she knows her life needs changing.

But can Jemima reinvent herself? And should she?

Jemima J. is a brilliantly funny, honest novel about ugly ducklings and swans, attraction, addiction and the meaning of true love.

'Green writes with acerbic wit about the law of the dating jungle' Sunday Express

'The kind of novel you'll gobble up in a single sitting' Cosmopolitan

'The ultimate makeover novel' Sunday Times

Review:

"Cleverly probes the world of a very smart, very funny, very fat reporter . . .Americans will enjoy this confection and appreciate how Green renders a certain humor-impaired California earnestness about health, happiness, and love."-"USA Today""A brilliantly funny novel about something close to every woman's heart -her stomach." -"Woman's Own" "The kind of novel you'll gobble up at a single sitting."--"Cosmopolitan"
