Booklist Review

Maggie O'Leary is the champion of the overweight. A columnist at a New York newspaper, she writes Fat Chance, in which she discusses the real obstacles facing overweight people, debunks myths about the obese, and tries to bolster her readers' confidence. Maggie is secure with her own shapely figure until she receives a call from Hollywood actor Mike Taylor. Mike is going to play a diet doctor in an upcoming film, and he wants Maggie to be his consultant. Maggie is reluctant--how can she go to Hollywood, where everyone is skinny and perfect and she's not? So she decides to secretly go on a diet. But she isn't going to be able to hide from her colleagues forever, and when word gets out to her readers, she has to find a way to balance her new look with her old philosophies. Light as a cupcake and as fun to devour, Blumenthal's debut novel (and Red Dress Ink's second hardcover) will likely find many fans. --Kristine Huntley Copyright 2004 Booklist
