"Thick. Heavy. Big-boned. Plump. Full-figured. Chunky. Womanly." To Emery Jackson, these phrases are just nice euphemisms for the big "F" word of "fat." But to her workout fiend dad, underwear model sister, and former Laker Girls mother, they are unacceptable states of being.

As the pounds start to drop and the ratings skyrocket, Emery feels the weight of success. And she must figure out how to turn the truths she uncovers--about beauty, love, fame, and family--into the keys to more than just fortune.
