Complete fluff - I stopped reading it about 1/3 of the way through. Couldn't finish it.

Hooray for a book about a woman who is a "perfect" size 12 and THINKS she's perfect that way. She doesn't sit around eating and bemoaning what she's doing, there's no mention of her going to the gym, or trying to "squeeze" into small pants, or feeling bad about herself. The "heroine" of this book simply IS her size. Like it and get on with it. This quick page-turner centers around a nice woman who is trying to win a promotion at her job. The requisite stereotypes DO exist in this book (the rich, body-obsessed, skinny blond with a bad marriage who is jealous of our heroine, the flighty but loyal best friend) but you won't find them detracting from the enjoyability of this book. You'll definitely root for the "perfect size 12" to win- in her job, in her love life, in everything!
