Ugly Ducklings and Swans

Jemima J book coverJemima knows she isn’t what most would call attractive.  Though she puts effort into her style, hair, and skin, others see only fat.  Her skinny roommates treat her more like a maid than a friend, and her coworker crush thinks of her as a buddy.  She’s even convinced that her size is holding her back professionally.  In Jemima J, an early novel by bestselling author Jane Green, an Internet flirtation gives Jemima the motivation to reinvent herself, but even then she can’t believe anyone could be seriously interested.  An everywoman with a healthy sense of humor, Jemima undergoes a transformation that is emotional as well as physical, learning that it isn’t how you look that ultimately allows you to be your true self.
