Conversations with the Fat Girl


by Liza Palmer

Olivia and Maggie had been best friends ever since, but after Olivia's gastric bypass surgery everything has suddenly changed and she's not whom Maggie had known long before. Olivia changes her childhood history, hangs out with uber-fashionista socialites and gets to marry Dr. Farell who doesn't know she was formerly obese.

The two girls battle it out for their friendship: Maggie, wanting to save their genuine bond and be the best friend Olivia had all along versus Olivia, wishing to be a permanent sexy icon for her fiancé and for her new friends, although at the end of the day she's running back to her childhood best friend.

Rating: 3 stars - I liked the story but it just had too many 'F' word, but I guess it's part of the reality scenario the author tries to imply. I'm not a fat girl; I'm the opposite of it coz' I am slim but I could relate to Maggie having this struggle against life and friendship. Maggie's character seems to be pathetic but that's the cherry of the story - she has a lot of flaws making her human. You'd be seeing yourself relating to Maggie hoping to find true love and friendship.
