misadventures of fatwomanAndi has always been anxious about her weight and, like many women, thinks that unless she is thin, she has no value.  Follow her misadventures and see if this is true, or will she find there are more important things that makes a person who and what they are?

“A great read which has so much humour within it I laughed out loud a few times. I can recognise myself in so many of the situations Andi finds herself in.  One particular part which made me laugh, as well as wonder how she found the guts to do it, involves a costume she wears near the end of the book. I won’t say anything more than this – I want one!! So so funny.”

Author note:  Themes such as guilt, sorrow, embarrassment, shame, disgust, friendship, love and hope are threaded throughout the story.  I think the appeal would be for women to relate to the themes and the story as a whole.  I truly hope that it will force them to like who they are and accept their bodies, regardless of size.  It may even help men, if they dared to read it, to understand the see-saw of emotions that women have to face each day in an unforgiving and harsh world, especially where image is everything.
