#1 New York Times bestselling author Jennifer Weiner brings to life an irresistibly funny and relatable heroine in the novel The Boston Globe called “funny, fanciful, extremely poignant, and rich with insight.”For twenty-eight years, things have been tripping along nicely for Cannie Shapiro. Sure, her mother has come charging out of the closet, and her father has long since dropped out of her world. But she loves her friends, her rat terrier, Nifkin, and her job as pop culture reporter for The Philadelphia Examiner. She’s even made a tenuous peace with her plus-size body. But the day she opens up a national women’s magazine and sees the words “Loving a Larger Woman” above her ex-boyfriend’s byline, Cannie is plunged into misery…and the most amazing year of her life. From Philadelphia to Hollywood and back home again, she charts a new course for herself: mourning her losses, facing her past, and figuring out who she is and who she can become.

"I got the publisher’s pre-release of this when I worked at Barnes and Noble 20 years ago. They gave it to us so we could read it and hopefully recommend it to customers since she was a new author. I fell in love with her and have been reading, and recommending her, since then. Guess the publishers had the right idea?😉"
"i found this at value village and read it in a couple days even tho it was quite long. it was a pretty good read—definitely engaging and made me think a lot about my relationship (for better or for worse). sometimes it felt dated in its humor/morals but that’s probably because it’s as old as i am. overall, it was a fun easy read about a woman’s relationship with men and a world that fundamentally hates her as a fat woman.

"Main character was a little bit annoying. Made you dislike her instead of rooting for her. "
