Waiting On Wednesday (90)

This is a meme hosted by Breaking the Spine where every Wednesday bloggers highlight a book that they are eagerly anticipating the release of!

45 Pounds (More or Less)
By KA Barson 
Release Date: July 11, 2013
Summary: 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!

This one sounds so good! I love books about real girls who aren't  a perfect size two while they chow down on fries, burgers, and ice cream every other page. Please be realistic! This one definitely sounds like a book people are going to relate to and I can't wait to see how it turns out. Will she lose the weight? Or will she learn to love her body? And who is this cutest guy she's ever seen???? I can't wait to find out!
