Availability: Out Of Stock

Sad, lonely Sharon Plunkett is a size 18. She's tried every fad, every diet, every cream, but like a stain of grease on a pure silk blouse, her rolls of fat refuse to budge. The man of her dreams is not interested, and her slim friend Debbee uses her to look good. But all that changes when Sharon magically finds herself in a fantastic, reversed world where it's suddenly "in" to be fat, and "out" to be slim!Now feted and adored for her curvaceously large body and stunning face, she goes from being a newly discovered model to a Hollywood icon. Dating ever more glamorous men on the way, Sharon journeys to the top of the celebrity world as a magnificent example of womanhood. But then it all goes wrong. Very wrong. In this wickedly funny satire on Size Zero, celebrity weight obsessed magazines, the fashion industry, the advertising industry, high society, and Hollywood, no area of media-fueled "body perfection" bullying remains unscathed. A delicious, page-turning novel that highlights press manipulation, and hits back at the "skinny insanity" currently gripping the western world.
