Contemporary Chick Lit
Jemima Jones is overweight. About one hundred pounds
overweight. Treated like a maid by her thin and
social-climbing roommates, and lorded over by the beautiful
Geraldine (less talented but better paid) at the Kilburn
Herald, Jemima finds that her only consolation is food. Add
to this her passion for her charming, sexy, and unobtainable
colleague Ben, and Jemima knows her life is in need of a
serious change. When she meets Brad, an eligible California
hunk, over the Internet, she has the perfect opportunity to
reinvent herselfâ€“as JJ, the slim, beautiful, gym-obsessed
glamour girl. But when her long-distance Romeo demands that
they meet, she must conquer her food addiction to become the
bone-thin model of her e-mailsâ€“no small feat.
With a fast-paced plot that never quits and a surprise
ending no reader will see coming, Jemima J is the chronicle
of one woman's quest to become the woman she's always wanted
to be, learning along the way a host of lessons about
attraction, addiction, the meaning of true love, and,
ultimately, who she really is.

Re: Jemima J
I read three other 1ane's books and liked them a lot. The JJ sounds very good, will look for it at my library.
