Book Giveaway: B as in Beauty

I'm authorized to give away up to three. Rules for a valid entry are below. Please read them carefully.

B as in Beauty
by Alberto Ferreras
Pub. Grand Central Publishing

Everyone in the world, it seems, is either prettier or thinner (or both) than Beauty Marie Zavala. And the only thing "B" resents more than her name is the way others judge her for the extra 40 pounds she can't lose. At least she has her career. Or did, until she overhears her boss criticizing her weight and devising a scheme to keep her from being promoted. Enter B's new tax accountant, a modern-day matchmaker determined to boost B's flagging self-esteem by introducing her to rich, successful men who will accept her for who she is. As B's confidence blossoms, so do her fantasies of revenge. But will B find true happiness or true disaster when she unwittingly falls for the one guy she shouldn't?

Since I am plus sized myself, I know the feeling-it's not always easy living in a thin world :( While I do need to lose some weight for my health, learning to embrace my curves and pleasingly plump body wasn't always easy. I'd love to read this!

This reminds me a little of Ugly Betty - and I hope it is just as charming and fun!

Count me in. What models go through to stay in the game is amazing. The obsession with food starts quite young.
