Présentation de l'éditeur
When Nola Devlin is turned down for her dream job because she's overweight, she decides to become thin-or, at least, pretend to be. The alter ego she creates-the thin, British, hip, and did we mention thin Belinda Apple-is a smashing success who is offered movie proposals, national television appearances and even dates...though no one's met her in person, of course.
Then Nola takes Belinda a bit too far, and is forced to join "The Cinderella Pact" and drop the pounds. As the weight comes off, however, Nola's problems begin to mount.

I thought the plot of this book sounded interesting and it seemed to start off promising. What I've come to notice in each book though is that there's always a rich someone or other that makes all problems go away. Well, this is real life. That doesn't happen. It pretty much makes me feel uncomfortable and depressed in a way.
Nola, seemed really down on people compared to how she hated people treating her differently because of her size. Which actually feels pretty real. I think we all mostly stereotype people by just looking at them no matter who we are. That's why I think this book had so much promise. Unfortunately, it just fell apart.
Some parts that were funny at first seemed to be dragged out and beaten to death. For instance the nun part. Ok, funny to mention once but continuously mentioning it over and over is kind of sad and makes it not even remotely funny.
I found this novel long and boring. I was skipping parts just to get through it. Not to mention the ending in my opinion was terrible. I don't think there is any part of this novel that can be considered romance. That would require the characters to be in the same place more than three times.
This novel just didn't feel right to me at all. I'm glad that Nola set her life in the right direction it just wasn't very believable for me. I have one more book in the bundle I purchased and I'm hoping it better.
However, the entire story has a fairytale theme that, in my opinion, went too far and got annoying after awhile. Much of the book is written in an open, realistic, honest way that most women can identify with, then suddenly something fantastical happens and it just comes across as silly and contrived. The "fantasy" parts seemed tacked on and tacky (like the rich, successful Prince Charming's out-of-nowhere efforts to woo a chubby girl he's met twice, for instance, or the 4-hour "transformation" at the beauty salon that made her unrecognizable to her own boss and best friends.) After several chapters of realistic, lovely, lively writing, I was disappointed that the story kept returning to these ridiculous "twists" that are more Disney than Sex and the City. I like the idea of the modern-day fairytale just as much as the next girl, I just think this book would've done better without going so overboard.
All in all, the good parts outweigh the stumbling blocks and it comes out being a a nice, light, amusing summer read that has already started making the rounds among my girlfriends.
