This is the diary of Burn Rivers.

Bernadette Rivers has had enough. Always the fat friend and fat twin, she's ready to be more.
This summer she's going to lose the weight that's been holding her back.
As determined as she is, Burn knows she can't do it alone.
Enter Warren Grey; ex-high school hottie and stereotypical jock. He is everything that tormented her about high school but she knows he's exactly what she needs.
With a distant mother, a sister with poor taste, a polar opposite best friend and enough insecurities to fill the Grand Canyon, can she learn to love the skin she's in?

And then, of course, there's Fred.

    Just read it! I laughed, I cried and pre-ordered the next one the moment I finished reading it! The characters are endearing, the writing descriptive but not flowery, and the heroine is relatable and as much of a goddess at the beginning of the book as she is at the end (she just doesn't realise it yet!). LOVE IT!! 💕💕💕

    Whilst the writing isn't amazing, it's still drags you in and want you to know what will happen. It is also fairly motivating and inspiring and reminds you that the body image is not the most important thing in the world, but how you feel about your self. A great reminder that we all need. What's even more intriguing is that there is another book coming, so excited to see what will go on further.
  • Brilliant!

  • Ok but cringey in parts

    I wasn't hooked on this book to be honest but I saw it through to the end. I think that overall it was ok. Not great. I can see what the author was trying to do with it but some of the writing style just made me cringe a little bit especially the repetitive use of song lyrics being dropped in. I found it hard to connect with the main characters too and I think that the relationship between Bern and Warren was made obvious way too fast. I knew from the off they'd get together even when Fred was thrown into the mix. I don't buy that Warren would go from bad bully guy to the most caring guy on the planet in the blink of an eye either. I know it's fiction but I prefer something a bit more realistic.
