First of all, I love the cover of this book! Even if I hadn't graciously been allowed to review it on the blog tour, I would have definitely been drawn to it.
I could definitely identify with the main character due to her weight issues, and I'm sure a lot of can! I think that the fact that she also judged others in a similar manner is also often something we all struggle with.
This book kept me very interested. It wasn't too heavy a read which is great for me these days and yet it also made me want to keep reading to find out what was going to happen next to the characters as you get somewhat attached to them.
I'd say this book is a great read and would think most would enjoy it.

Kathleen is the resident staff writer for Castle Farms, a world renowned castle listed on the National Historic Register, and co-author of the non-fiction book FOR THE LOVE OF A CASTLE, published in 2012.
