Book Review: 45 Pounds (More or less) {K.A. Barson}

You might remember that I bought this book while on my Half Price Books Outlet excursion a few months ago. I randomly saw it on the shelf, read the synopsis, and knew that I wanted to read it. I immediately thought of THIS BOOK which I absolutely LOVED (if you haven’t read that book yet…READ IT TODAY). I prayed that 45 Pounds (More or less) {K.A. Barson} would leave me with all the feels just as that book did.

Goodreads Synopsis of 45 Pounds (More or Less) {K.A. Barson}:

Here are the numbers of Ann Galardi’s life:

She is 16.
And a size 17.
Her perfect mother is a size 6.
Her Aunt Jackie is getting married in 10 weeks, and wants Ann to be her bridesmaid.
So Ann makes up her mind: Time to lose 45 pounds (more or less) in 2 1/2 months.

Welcome to the world of infomercial diet plans, wedding dance lessons, embarrassing run-ins with the cutest guy Ann’s ever seen—-and some surprises about her NOT-so-perfect mother.

And there’s one more thing. It’s all about feeling comfortable in your own skin-—no matter how you add it up! 

My Review of 45 Pounds (More or Less) {K.A. Barson}:

I really loved this book.

It was so wonderfully written and the characters were so descriptive. I was completely invested in this story! It’s such a short book with very short chapters (the BEST). I flew through this book and read it over the course of just a few days. I could EASILY have read it all in one sitting!

This topic is such as important one, and this YA book does such a great job discussing something that isn’t normally discussed so candidly. There were so many lessons within the pages of this book, lessons for teenagers AND adults.

**As much as I did love this book I will say that I did love THIS BOOK about the same topic even more**

Bottom Line:

Loved it.
