Ann Galardi is 16 - and a size 16. She's always struggled with her weight, and her perfect size 6 mother. This summer, it's worse: Aunt Jackie's getting married in August, and Ann's her bridesmaid. She decides she's losing 45 pounds in two months-or else. Thus begins a rollicking odyssey that features an infomercial diet plan, unfortunate dance lessons, a series of mortifying encounters with an adorable guy, and some revelations about Ann's not-so perfect mother.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"With both humor and debth, the story of Ann's resilience, determination, and strength will inspire readers on their own journey toward a sparkly new life." --Susane Colasanti, author of Keep Holding On

"You'll love this book so much that you'll wish you had a friend like Ann." --Cynthia Leitich Smith, New York Times bestselling author

"Deliciously relatable, with a lot of laughter on the side." -- Rita Williams-Garcia, New York Times best-selling author

* "Barson offers up a powerful and poignant novel about hope and love in the midst of common and controversial issues about weight gain, weight loss, and the ability to persevere despite our flaws and predispositions to "eating," or not eating, our emotions. It is a book readers will not want to wait to finish, and when it is done, they will pick it up again." --VOYA, starred review
