Her disregard for her body was like a black hole that she hadn’t seen herself falling into. When she was so deeply ensconced, she could see no way out.
Mara Jacobs ( Worth the Weight, Chapter: 16)
A new body. A new life. An old flame?
Lizzie Hampton is literally a shadow of her former self. Having lost half her body weight, she’s headed to her small hometown to test out her new body on an old flame. Just a harmless fling to get her self-confidence back before she returns to the city and the new man in her life.
But Lizzie’s plan has a few bumps in the road.
Finn Robbins can’t believe Liz is back in town. Desperate to be the holder of her innocence eighteen years ago, he never got the chance. Now she’s back and he can finally check her off his to do list. But her friends, his son, and the mysterious Annie may have something to say about that.
Not much to say about this book as it was quite predictable. Not a bad read per se but there wasn’t anything new to the story to make it stand out. The only fact I liked about this piece is that it really reflects the raw emotions related to body image. The acceptance of ones true self & its effects on one’s self-esteem are explored. Read if you have time to spare.
