Review : How I Got Skinny, Famous, and Fell Madly in Love

How I Got Skinny, Famous and Fell Madly In Love
Ken Baker
 Running Press Kids
From Goodreads: Thick. Heavy. Big boned. Plump. Full figured. Chunky. Womanly. Large. Curvy. Plus-size. Hefty." To sixteen-year-old Emery Jackson, these are all just euphemisms for the big "F" word—"fat." Living on a Southern California beach with her workout fiend dad, underwear model sister, and former model mother, it is impossible for Emery not to be aware of her weight.

Emery is okay with how things are. That is, until her "momager" signs her up for Fifty Pounds to Freedom, a reality show in which Emery will have to lose fifty pounds in fifty days in order to win the million dollars that will solve her family's financial woes. Emery is skeptical of the process, but when the pounds start to come off and the ratings skyrocket, she finds it hard to resist the adoration of her new figure and the world of fame. Emery knows that things have changed. But is it for the better?
My Review:  I received this book for review from Netgalley and the Publisher.
                       Wow. I love this book. Emery is an amazing heroine, if she where a real person I would want to meet her. This deals with an issue every girl goes threw in their lives, and the pressure to be thin and (what others think is ) perfect. Emery growth during this story is heartwarming and encouraging. I was sympathetic and understanding to this character and love the ending of this dramatic tale .
