With a fast-paced plot that never quits and a surprise ending no reader will see coming, Jemima J is the chronicle of one woman's quest to become the woman she's always wanted to be, learning along the way a host of lessons about attraction, addiction, the meaning of true love, and, ultimately, who she really is.
"Cleverly probes the world of a very smart, very funny, very fat reporter . . .Americans will enjoy this confection and appreciate how Green renders a certain humor-impaired California earnestness about health, happiness, and love."
"A brilliantly funny novel about something close to every woman's heart –her stomach." –Woman's Own
"The kind of novel you'll gobble up at a single sitting."
