Introduction

#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.

  "Good in Bed"by Grandmarose (see profile) 01/20/16

This is a book written about serious topics in a humorous way due to the personality of the main character Cannie. Throughout the book, Cannie deals with abandonment, lovelessness, and strug... (read more)

 
  "Good in Bed"by Edithmv (see profile) 03/24/12

It probably read really well when Sex and the City was really popular (as the book was first published around that time). I'd say that the book may be most enjoyed by young adults.

 
  "Good in Bed Review"by AndreaCavagnaro (see profile) 07/17/11

I thought this was a fun book. I think that Cannie has some serious self esteem issues but I loved her quirky sense of humor. I found myself longing to read more about Cannie.

 
  "A romantic story of Food and Love"by lollygil (see profile) 01/28/11

Another fun easy read from Jennifer Weiner. A great beach read for lazy days in the sun.

 
  "Not a Book Club Book but a fun read!"by niliev (see profile) 01/18/11

Beach reading through and through!

 
  "Not the story I expected"by mytime (see profile) 01/13/11

It was not the light hearted story I was expecting. Her life takes some very serious ups and downs. But over all it was a good book.

 
  "Not Good"by ercourson (see profile) 09/12/10

Shallow and definitely not "good"

 
  "eh"by showchoirnerd (see profile) 06/14/10

I didn't love this book. I got it on CD for a long car trip (it was on clearance at Borders). It was a good enough "fluff" novel, but nothing I would recommend to someone else.

 
  "Girly Book"by carlymu (see profile) 06/01/10

Got off to a slow start, but enjoyed the story. Not much to it though.
