Review of Size Eight in a Size Zero World by Meredith Cagen

Size Eight in a Size Zero World is a witty and fun read. It is full of high society with name-dropping, elite fashion and money references that aren’t even conceivable to me. LOL! But, that is part of the fun, the inconceivable world of the rich and famous, connections and more connections, money speaking to money for favors to scramble to the top, those in the way be damned… What a world!  Through this backdrop, Lindsey gets herself into one big whirlwind after another as she goes through Plan A, Plan B, and even begins to contemplate a Pan C to get the one thing she wants – yes, a man J But not just any man, and this alpha male is one that just like Lindsey, the reader loves and hates, drools over and then eats ice cream to sooth a bruised ego. *giggles*

Re-invention is always a wondrous thing, and throughout this novel reading of the compliments on her weight loss, her new clothes, etc. I found myself wanting to do the same. Think I am due for a good diet, a new wardrobe, new hairstyle and new make-up anyway? *sighs* Anyway, while this is a novel with an ‘affair,’ it is more of a novel about a woman who stayed in a bad marriage far too long. And, the ending, well as I was still torn throughout the novel as to how I wanted it to end, so a ‘real-life’ ending was appropriate. I am thinking that just like the new “smart” movies that leave you thinking about life, this piece of chick-lit was the same way.
