Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: "The newest heartwarming novel from the New York Times bestselling author tells the story of two friends who make a promise to face their deepest hopes and greatest fears by agreeing to stop waiting to lose weight and start living now. Marley, Georgia, and Emerson met at fat camp as teens, and they never would have survived it without each other. They bonded against the disapproval of their family and friends by loving each other for who they were and dreaming together of when things would be better--something they formalized by writing up a list of all the things they'd do once they lost the weight... Now, seventeen years later, Emerson is morbidly obese and on her death bed from the strain of her weight on her heart. She calls Marley and Georgia to her side one last time and makes them promise her to stop waiting to live, and do the list now"--

    Emerson, Georgia, and Marley met at weight-loss camp when they were teenagers. When Emerson dies, she leaves behind the to-do list that bonded the girls together as they worked to lose weight, including things like riding piggyback on a boy and eating dessert in public. Georgia, now thinner and experiencing unexplained stomach pains, and Marley, carrying extra weight, decide to take Emerson up on her last request and complete the list. Higgins (Now That You Mention It, 2017) uses a comfortable, conversational style to delicately tackle the much-talked-about issue of female body image with this compassionate story of two friends with varying struggles regarding their weight. The alternating perspectives between present-day Georgia and Marley, and via Emerson's journals, will take readers on a journey from Georgia's toxic-mother issues to Marley's self-acceptance to Emerson's all-encompassing body struggles. The list was only the beginning in this heartbreakingly gorgeous story of female friendship and what it takes to feel comfortable in one's own skin. Copyright 2018 Booklist Reviews.
