There is a certain book that I have been seeing pop up for quite a while now. And it is coming out this month! So excited 😀
I Am Waiting On…
45 Pounds (More or Less) by K.A. Barson
Release Date: July 11th 2013 by Viking Juvenile
Synopsis: Here are the numbers of Ann Galardi’s life:
She is 16.
And a size 17.
Her perfect mother is a size 6.
Her Aunt Jackie is getting married in 10 weeks, and wants Ann to be her bridesmaid.
So Ann makes up her mind: Time to lose 45 pounds (more or less) in 2 1/2 months.
Welcome to the world of infomercial diet plans, wedding dance lessons, embarrassing run-ins with the cutest guy Ann’s ever seen—-and some surprises about her NOT-so-perfect mother.
And there’s one more thing. It’s all about feeling comfortable in your own skin-—no matter how you add it up!
“Deliciously relatable with a lot of laughter on the side.” — Rita Williams-Garcia, New York Times best-selling author
Why?: It sounds so cute and charming! The cover even looks cute 🙂 Plus, the main character is overweight–something that I have never really encountered. I am looking forward to reading a good book that paints a good picture on body image and the like.
