Waiting on Wednesday: 45 Pounds by K.M. Barson

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.  Its purpose is to spotlight eagerly-anticipated upcoming releases.

This week I’m eagerly awaiting:

45 Pounds by K.M. Barson

Expected Release Date: July 11, 2013

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 8 weeks, and wants Ann to be her bridesmaid.
So Ann makes up her mind: Time to lose 45 pounds (more or less) in two months.

Welcome to the world of informercial diet plans, terrifying wedding dance lessons, endless 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!

(summary via Goodreads)

This looks to be the kind of book I like, and it’s already attracting some good buzz.  As long as the book walks the line between being entertaining and not overly-didactic, this is looking like a fun summer read.  I’ll definitely be checking this one out come July.

What are you waiting on this week?
