One of Purewow’s “Best Beach Reads of Summer 2018”
Winner for Best Book of 2018 of the Fresh Fiction Awards!

New York Times bestselling author Kristan Higgins is beloved for her heartfelt novels filled with humor and wisdom. Now, she tackles an issue every woman deals with: body image and self-acceptance.

Emerson, Georgia, and Marley have been best friends ever since they met at a weight-loss camp as teens. When Emerson tragically passes away, she leaves one final wish for her best friends: to conquer the fears they still carry as adults.

For each of them, that means something different. For Marley, it's coming to terms with the survivor's guilt she's carried around since her twin sister's death, which has left her blind to the real chance for romance in her life. For Georgia, it's about learning to stop trying to live up to her mother's and brother's ridiculous standards, and learning to accept the love her ex-husband has tried to give her.

But as Marley and Georgia grow stronger, the real meaning of Emerson's dying wish becomes truly clear: more than anything, she wanted her friends to love themselves.

A novel of compassion and insight, Good Luck With That tells the story of two women who learn to embrace themselves just the way they are.

Good Luck With That

What a great book! I’ve had a weight problem my whole life. I can relate to these women so well. Great characters and I’m a sucker for romance and happy endings.

A hard book for an overweight woman

This book was uncomfortable for me in many ways because I am an overweight woman. I am clinically obese. Thankfully, I am blessed with a husband that loves me thin, thick, & all in between, never uttering a negative word about my weight. I’m blessed to have family & friends who love me for who I am & not what size I am. It was gratifying to read that for Marley & Georgia, they were eventually able to learn to love themselves, not based on their weight. When they learned their value, good things started to happen in their lives. Everybody has something about themselves that they stress over. For many of us, it’s weight, but everybody has something they struggle with.

A Truly Boring Book

Omg, this thing plods along so horribly. Six plots crammed in one book, all of them boring. Last time I waste money on this drivel.
