Summary: An interesting book which engaged with issues of race and weight thoughtfully, but sometimes felt preachy or too direct.

This is the story of two women, Daphne and Alice, who join a reality show focused on losing weight.  Both women’s lives are negatively impacted by their weight and by the way they feel about their weight. This makes it hard for them to let go of the promise of the show to help them, even when it becomes clear that the producers might not have their best interests in mind. Read more »

Summary: This was a gripping book, but more tense than emotionally moving, and I didn’t feel as though the main character had enough agency.

“Maddy is a social worker trying to balance her career and three children. Years ago, she fell in love with Ben, a public defender, drawn to his fiery passion, but now he’s lashing out at her during his periodic verbal furies. She vacillates between tiptoeing around him and asserting herself for the sake of their kids – which works to keep a fragile peace – until the rainy day when they’re together in the car and Ben’s volatile temper gets the best of him, leaving Maddy in the hospital fighting for her life.” (Source) Read more »
