Diary of an Adorable Fat Girl- Bernice Bloom 5*
For every woman who has ever been on a diet (that’s all of us then!) and anyone
who has suffered low self esteem for whatever reason- this is a must read.
Mary is overweight (as you might gather from the title). Her confidence is at an
all time low so she joins an overeating group- soon known as “fat club”. There
she meets like minded people who understand her predicament and support
each other through thick and thin ( well almost!). Although this is a light hearted
read there are some serious issues addresses such as the aforementioned
low self esteem and those comforts that we all turn to for one reason or another.
Mary has a secret that she has kept for many years which is where her issues
started. She doesn’t want to talk about it as that will remind her of it and that
she can’t bear to do. She soon realises that inside is just as important as outside.
Bernice has a wonderful way with words and incorporates much into a few
pages that makes you think about maybe your own issues or of those you see
around you. A wonderful pick you up, feel good read.

Author Bio –
Hello, my name is Bernice Bloom and I am a writer (I write light-hearted rom-com style novels and also work as a magazine journalist and advertising copywriter) and jewellery designer. My recent series of novels is called ‘Adorable Fat Girl’ and it features a heavily overweight woman called Mary Brown. She is bright, funny, friendly and bonkers. She’s also fat. The books blend the comedy of her efforts to lose weight with a more serious backstory about what happened to her in the past that had led to the issues that make her prone to over-eating. I’m fascinated that there are so few overweight heroines in literature. Women can be manipulative, evil, even murderers in fiction, but not fat! Certainly not fat and beautiful with loads of friends! Then along came Mary and she’s developed quite a fan base of people who love the fact that the heroine is large. She gets lots of letters and I have ended up taking her on lots of adventures!
