Waiting on Wednesday 4/24/2013

Release Date: 11 July 2013

Here are the numbers of Ann Galardi’s life:

She is 16.
And a size 17.
Her perfect mother is a size 6.
Her Aunt Jackie is getting married in 10 weeks, and wants Ann to be her bridesmaid.
So Ann makes up her mind: Time to lose 45 pounds (more or less) in 2 1/2 months.

Welcome to the world of informercial diet plans, wedding dance lessons, embarrassing run-ins with the cutest guy Ann’s ever seen—-and some surprises about her NOT-so-perfect mother. 

And there’s one more thing. It’s all about feeling comfortable in your own skin-—no matter how you add it up!

I read a book recently that touched on the subject of obesity and insecurities regarding self-image. I gave it a low review because the author didn't approach this delicate subject in the manner in which I would have liked to have seen. However, THIS story looks funny and real and, hopefully, offers people a more positive outlook on their own bodily dislikes. Life is too short to stress about the small things--I want to LAUGH and SING!!  Can't wait to read 45 pounds and pass it on to my daughter as an example of a positive approach to life.
