a book in review!

Brief Summary:
This is the diary of Burn Rivers.

Bernadette Rivers has had enough. Always the fat friend and fat twin, she's ready to be more.
This summer she's going to lose the weight that's been holding her back.
As determined as she is, Burn knows she can't do it alone.
Enter Warren Grey; ex-high school hottie and stereotypical jock. He is everything that tormented her about high school but she knows he's exactly what she needs.
With a distant mother, a sister with poor taste, a polar opposite best friend and enough insecurities to fill the Grand Canyon, can she learn to love the skin she's in?

And then, of course, there's Fred.

 I read Diary of a Fat Girl when I was in between reads off my "To Be Read" list. I stumbled upon it and I'm SO glad I did. I felt an instant camaraderie with Bernadette. I swear I there were times when I thought I was reading my own diary. Full disclosure, if you read this book, it's part of a series and the next on comes out Dec 31st. I never would have dove head first into Burn's life if I knew the rest of her story was so far away. This is the type of book that grips you from every angle. Especially if you've struggled with weight. If you are looking for a new 5 star story to get lost in that will make you laugh, cry, and every emotion in between, than this is for you, xo!

Ps. it's free on iTunes
