When the pounds start falling off Katie, founder and president of London’s most popular social club for the calorie-challenged, it seems like a dream come true. But as the overweight stigma recedes and her life starts to change, she faces losing more than the inches around her waist. Everything that’s important to her – her closest friends, boyfriend, and acceptance into the club itself – are at stake in a world where thin is the new fat.
A funny, heart-warming story about overcoming the prejudices we hold, no matter where we tip the scales.

Well, there was no racy, steamy adult scenes or murder mysteries to solve… but I really, really liked this book.
I am a curvy girl so I could relate to this book and the emotions that came with this book.
There were times I wanted to scream, yell, kick, and wring someone’s neck (and it’s well deserved!)
I love the concept of the Curvy Girls Club and would love to find one or create one where I live because the whole concept is amazing!
The basis of the entire story is 100% spot on and 100% truth.
I would venture to say that mainly women would prefer this book (and you certainly do not need to be curvy to enjoy it), but I think there are some men who would enjoy this too (and spoiler alert, one of the main members to the Curvy Girls Club is a male!)
I would definitely recommend this book to all!
PS: It was quite fun to read a book based in London! I enjoyed learning new terminology!
