Michele Gorman’s latest romantic comedy, The Curvy Girls Club, launches in the US and Canada on June 17th.
RomCom booklovers in the UK, Europe, Australia and the rest of the world will have to wait a bit longer since HarperCollins isn’t publishing the book in those regions until January 2015, but you can sign up here (http://michelegormanwriter.blogspot.co.uk/) for the chance to read it for free before it’s published!
About The Curvy Girls Club
A funny, heart-warming story about overcoming the prejudices we hold, no matter where we tip the scales.
When the pounds start falling off Katie, founder and president of London’s most popular social club for the calorie-challenged, it seems like a dream come true. But as the overweight stigma recedes and her life starts to change, she faces losing more than the inches around her waist. Everything that’s important to her – her closest friends, boyfriend, and acceptance into the club itself – are at stake in a world where thin is the new fat.
“So engaging and witty, yet insightful and empathetic.” Sophie Kinsella, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author
"A book about friendship, love and most of all, loving yourself; you'll eat this up." Catherine McKenzie, bestselling author of Spin and Hidden

Sometimes looks can be deceiving
Annabel’s not surprised when nobody recognises her at her 10 year reunion. The spotty fat teen nicknamed AnnaBall by the school bullies is long gone. But standing on the edge of the popular crowd, she still feels like that girl. That is, until Jack, her teen crush, starts flirting with her. Much to her amusement, he has mistaken her for Christy Blake, Annabel’s chief tormenter before she moved to France in their last year.
It’s just a bit of fun at first, letting Jack believe she’s Christy. After all, he was nuts about her before she said au revoir to England. And when he asks Annabel out, the fun becomes something even more interesting. The more they date the deeper they fall for each other. So what if Annabel has to fib a little to keep up the façade?
As the lies start compounding, and she realises that they’re falling in love, she has to tell him who she really is. But she’ll lose the love of her life if she does.
