Jemima Jones is overweight.
About seven stone overweight.

Treated like a slave by her thin and bitchy flatmates, lorded over at the Kilburn Herald by the beautiful Geraldine (less talented, but better paid), her only consolation is food. What with that and her passion for her charming, sexy colleague Ben, she knows her life needs changing.

But can Jemima reinvent herself? And should she?

A brilliantly funny, honest novel about ugly ducklings and swans, attraction, addiction and the meaning of true love.

'Compulsively readable . . . the ultimate makeover novel made over with irony . . . one for the beach' Sunday Times

'Green writes with acerbic wit about the law of the dating jungle, and its obsession with image, and the novel's as comforting as a bacon sandwich' Sunday Express

'A Brilliantly funny novel about something close to every woman's heart - her stomach' Woman's Own
