Booklist Review

Following the success of Girlfriends (2001), Sanchez presents three Washington, D.C., gals who have a penchant for living large. Recently divorced and determined to lose weight, Ruby takes in two new roommates. Wanda, a striking African American beauty, makes no bones about her aspirations for making it as a plus-sized model, while Simone, a sexy Latina and Washington's hottest news reporter, takes pride in her perfect size six figure. As Ruby bonds with Wanda and Simone, they help her come out of her shell by encouraging her to be herself and giving her a head-to-toe makeover. Ruby comes to treasure her new look, her new attitude, and her new friends. So when an up-and-coming model threatens Wanda's career and Ruby discovers that Simone is keeping a destructive secret, Ruby becomes determined to go to battle for them and to win. A witty tale about single women searching for friendship, unconditional love, and the perfect dessert. --Megan Kalan Copyright 2003 Booklist
