This is a joyful, uplifting book for those of us who sometimes wake up and feel we're not good enough. Spoiler alert: we are!

Meet Greta.

She's funny.

She's flawed.

She's hiding so much behind her big smile she's forgotten who she is.

But Greta is about to discover that the key to being happy is...being you.

Greta Gale has played the part of the funny fat one her entire life, hiding her insecurities behind a big smile. But size doesn't matter when you can laugh at yourself, right?
Until Greta realises she's the only one not laughing. And deep down, she's not sure if she'll ever laugh again.

But with her world feeling like it's falling down around her, Greta is about to discover she's stronger than she feels. And that sometimes the best moments in life come when it's all gone a bit pear-shaped...
