I had this book on my wish list for almost a year, so I finally gave up and bought it. It was worth every penny - a fun, fast read. The central story, about three women and their personal battles with weight loss is one so many of us can relate to. Nola Devlin's own story of how her frustration at being "overweight and frumpy" leads to her double life is hilarious and also very touching. I highly recommend this one.
