Fat Girl by K.L. Montgomery is a story, well more like a diary or a column in a paper, about a woman named Claire, who is separated from her husband. She thinks it is due to her weight. She’s the mother of a teenager and works hard at her job. She is turning 40 and really wants to change her body, her mind and her life and ends up changing her heart as well.
“All I need to do is find my own path to happiness. I have all the ingredients I need: a family, amazing friends, a job I love. The only thing that has been holding me back all this time is me. I haven’t let myself be happy.”
O.M.G. I’m a fat girl too!! Of course I already knew this but I swear Montgomery was in my head and heart while she was writing the “fat” parts of this story. While this “story” is a real eye opener, it was also entertaining. Claire is funny, outgoing and sarcastic! She grows a great deal and realizes two things: everyone’s fat is different, and even though we shouldn’t care what others think about us everyone still wants to be accepted and receive unconditional love.
“The point is being healthy, happy, and above all, yourself. Not making yourself crazy trying to be someone else’s idealized version of yourself,”
K.L. Montgomery is a new to me author so I’m not sure how her other books are written but this one hits the spot. Its funny, endearing, and honest. This story is definitely worth a read no matter what size you are!
