"I enjoyed every minute of it."
With all the serious books that I read, Size 0 in a Size 8 world was one that I was ready for. Lindsey, the main character, was so much like me it was pitiful. In this day we are told that being smaller is better and because of that, we find that we are constantly dieting and are not quite good enough. After reading this book I say, nonsense! I enjoyed watching Lindsey become a person who flourished into the woman that she was meant to be, a vibrant woman with curves and a backbone. Lindsey was a woman who took care of everyone else but herself. When she finally does start to take care of herself, her self confidence soars. "The man upstairs" was an excellent character to learn something from, which Lindsey finally did. Sometimes I wanted to say "Lindsey dahling, forget all of those who think you should be one way, you're perfect just the way you are!" I really enjoyed the ending which wrapped everything up rather quickly. I'd love to read a sequel to this book and find out how Lindsey is doing today. I recommend this book to all who love a little bit of chick lit and a whole lot of laughs.
Ms. Cagen writes with a dramatic yet humorous flair on problems that we face every day. This book really did have a Sex in the City feel to it and I enjoyed every minute of it. I look forward to reading more books by Ms. Cagen in the very near future. You did an excellent job with this book Ms. Cagen and please know that I'll be looking out for the next book

From the beginning of the book you see that Lindsay has friends who are very wealthy and she has a great lifestyle but she feels that something is missing. Lindsay forms an unexpected friendship with a man who lives upstairs. She has never slept with anyone other than Grant and the man upstairs changes that. He talks to Lindsey about getting in better shape, so she loses weight, and she changes her clothes to appeal to him. He is always out with models that wear a size zero and Lindsay wears a size eight. She tries to change to make him love her. She wants the happily ever after life but does she end up with it?
This is a great book about women and our feelings about who we are and what we are worth.
