From the Inside Flap:

Jemima Jones is overweight. About one hundred pounds overweight. Treated like a maid by her thin and social-climbing roommates, and lorded over by the beautiful Geraldine (less talented but better paid) at the Kilburn Herald, Jemima finds that her only consolation is food. Add to this her passion for her charming, sexy, and unobtainable colleague Ben, and Jemima knows her life is in need of a serious change. When she meets Brad, an eligible California hunk, over the Internet, she has the perfect opportunity to reinvent herself?as JJ, the slim, beautiful, gym-obsessed glamour girl. But when her long-distance Romeo demands that they meet, she must conquer her food addiction to become the bone-thin model of her e-mails?no small feat.
With a fast-paced plot that never quits and a surprise ending no reader will see coming, Jemima J is the chronicle of one woman's quest to become the woman she's always wanted to be, learning along the way a host of lessons about attraction, addiction, the meaning of true love, and, ultimately, who she really is.

From the Back Cover:

"Cleverly probes the world of a very smart, very funny, very fat reporter . . .Americans will enjoy this confection and appreciate how Green renders a certain humor-impaired California earnestness about health, happiness, and love."
USA Today
"A brilliantly funny novel about something close to every woman's heart
her stomach." Woman's Own

"The kind of novel you'll gobble up at a single sitting."
Cosmopolitan
