Publisher Description

Jemima Jones is overweight--about one hundred pounds overweight. Treated like a maid by her thin social-climbing roommates, and lorded over by the beautiful Geraldine (less talented but better paid) at the Kilburn Herald, Jemima's only consolation is food. Add to this her passion for her charming, sexy, and unobtainable colleague Ben, and Jemima knows her life is in need of a serious change. When she meets Brad, an eligible California hunk, over the Internet, Jemima has the perfect opportunity to reinvent herself as JJ, the slim, beautiful, gym-obsessed glamour girl of her dreams. But when her long-distance Romeo demands that they meet, she must conquer her food addiction to become the bone-thin model of her e-mails. This is just the beginning of Jemima's transformation, though; the process will take her through enormous physical and emotional changes and halfway around the globe.

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.

Very fun read!

This was my first JG read and I thoroughly enjoyed every page!

Such a unique main character

Liked the fact that the main character was flawed but not flawed, the supporting characters written very well. Geraldine and Lauren are the best!

Couldn't put it down!

I absolutely love Jemima J. I think every woman has they're own Jemima Jones with all of they're insecurities and flaws and things we wish we could change about ourselves to attract what we most want- job, man, clothes, etc. and then we also all have our own JJ. It's all about finding that happy medium-Jemima J. I'm so happy I read this! Truly my favorite book ever! <3
