This story is all the thrill that a person could ask for in a reading!!!! The love that is so vividly painted for you, actually causes your heart to skip a beat, you breath to catch, and your mind to go blank as if the love the is being shared is partly yours! Truly amazing!!

It was a great summer time read. Kept your interest throughout the book without giving away the ending. Mara Jacobs has a great, easy reading style of writing. Totally enjoy reading her books. Definitely worth the read.

If you have ever struggled with your body image you will totally get this story. That's why I love it. The characters are very real. I understand their struggling with their body and pride and how they get to the end of understanding who they need to be to be totally happy.

Such a realistic story. No billionaires and perfect Barbie types. Could imagine this story every step of the way as somebody living down the road. Loved the humanness of it all. And shed a tear or two. Can be read as stand alone but you willl be curious about Kate and Allison.

Nice read
February 6th, 2015
Nice story, nice characters, nice setting. A really enjoyable read. A little predictable, but still a good story along the way. Couldn't put it down a few times, but probably a great beach read because its easy to follow, nothing to deep you can't put it down and then pick up right where you left off easily.

Worth The Weight

I was mad at how Lizzie was just going to use Finn for the summer so that she could feel comfortable with her body before going for Davis. I am sort of glad that Finn called her on it, but not in the middle of a crowd and definitely not at the Fundraiser. He should have done it in private. However I am happy that they both realized that they loved each other, even still after 18 years. Thank you Mara, now I must read Worth the Drive. I am glad that Finn made her realize just how beautiful she really was after losing all the weight
