Publisher Description

#1 New York Times bestselling author Jennifer Weiner brings to life an irresistibly funny and relatable heroine in the novel The Boston Globe called “funny, fanciful, extremely poignant, and rich with insight.”

For twenty-eight years, things have been tripping along nicely for Cannie Shapiro. Sure, her mother has come charging out of the closet, and her father has long since dropped out of her world. But she loves her friends, her rat terrier, Nifkin, and her job as pop culture reporter for The Philadelphia Examiner. She’s even made a tenuous peace with her plus-size body.

But the day she opens up a national women’s magazine and sees the words “Loving a Larger Woman” above her ex-boyfriend’s byline, Cannie is plunged into misery…and the most amazing year of her life. From Philadelphia to Hollywood and back home again, she charts a new course for herself: mourning her losses, facing her past, and figuring out who she is and who she can become.

Amazing Female Lead

Cannie has a great personality. I love reading the words that come out of her mouth, the witty come backs and the down-to-earth delivery. She's a real people person. She's full-figured but doesn't let it slow her down. On the outside she is confident and full of life, but she does feel the barbs of plus-sized life on the inside. I like her realness.
I adored this story. It made me laugh and tear up, and it touched me deeply. It covers so many issues like weight, marriage, pregnancy, depression, parent-child relationships, gay family members, break ups, jobs and just a little of everything in a woman's life these days. The feeling is often light and occasionally heavy. It's inspiring, entertaining and delivered with a special oomph that's missing from some books. Good in Bed is a must read.
